Scope and Content

Correspondence and papers.

Administrative / Biographical History

The River Association for Freight and Transport was formed in 2000 by the Association of Master Lightermen and Barge Owners (Port of London), which merged into it on 1 January 2001. In most ways RAFT was a successor body to the AMLBO, although it was legally a new organisation. It was established "to encompass various interests for lighterage and related commercial interests in the Port of London".
