ALLMI – The Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers was formed in 1979, its primary function being to Create a Code of Practice for the industry.

ALLMI has three main objectives:

  1. To promote the safe use of lorry loaders.
  2. To ensure that the Association is involved in the formulation of any legislation which affects the industry’s interests.
  3. To promote compliance with training requirements embodied in current legislation.


Upon successful completion of the lorry loading training course, every candidate will receive an identity card and certificate (valid for 5 years) and will be registered on the ALLMI Operator database. Candidates also receive the ALLMI Operator’s manual.


Slinger/Signaller course approved for CPC

Further to the approval of its experienced and novice Lorry Loader courses, ALLMI has now gained recognition from the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) for its one day Slinger / Signaller programme.

  • Lorry Loader Operator
