FTA responds to government Spending Review

Added: 11 September 2019

Heidi Skinner, Head of Policy & Public Affairs Manager for the FTA said the logistics industry was “acutely aware of the need for government to support UK transport infrastructure, particularly at a time of such uncertainty for British business; without this, supply chains cannot continue to run smoothly and deliver the vital goods that our hospitals, schools and supermarkets need.”

The efficient movement of freight in the UK is vital to the economy, she added.  “It must not be stifled by inadequate infrastructure and a lack of capacity.? To ensure delays and disruption are minimised and journey times remain reliable, it is of the utmost importance that links to our ports work as effectively as possible. 

“We are also pleased to see the government’s strategy for an ‘infrastructure revolution’: a plan to rebuild our national infrastructure.  Effective connectivity for all modes of transport is essential for UK trade and for meeting the needs of people and business.  Ahead of the Budget later this year, FTA calls on HM Treasury to work closely with the logistics industry to ensure UK connectivity is prioritised.”
