Transport for the North hires consultants to develop Freight and Logistics Strategy

Transport for the North (TfN) will look to boost freight activity and job opportunities in northern England by creating a dedicated freight and logistics strategy. 

Consultancy firms Mott Macdonald and MDS Transmodal have been appointed to work with TfN to develop suitable investment proposals and a policy agenda for promoting the industry. 

The Freight and Logistics Strategy will form part of an updated Northern Transport Strategy, which will be considered by Chancellor George Osborne ahead of the 2016 Budget.
