FTA launches Logistics Manifesto urging greater understanding from government

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has called for better support from government to improve the efficiency of logistics in the UK. 

The FTA Logistics Manifesto – to be launched at today’s Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show in Birmingham – explains the association’s three main priorities: to deliver economic growth, improve safety and reduce pollution.

Karen Dee, FTA’s director of policy said: “Logistics underpins every aspect of modern life. It is utterly indispensable to the working our home lives, our businesses, our schools and hospitals – everything. We can make logistics more efficient, but we need better support from the Government. This doesn’t need to come with a huge price tag, but it does need greater understanding of the way we really operate and how Government can work with us to achieve its own aims.”
