Safety is the top priority for Logistics UK members. Logistics UK is campaigning for enhancement and improvements to the already-stringent set of regulations that support safe road freight operations.

The Workforce Logistics Needs

The logistics sector is suffering from a labour shortage, with an ageing workforce and record low unemployment, recruiting the workforce logistics needs is becoming more challenging.  

VIEW

Urban Logistics

Our towns and cities depend on reliable and efficient logistics to deliver food, clothes, documents, medicines, building and construction materials. Our industry delivers and collects, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Logistics and the Economy

Logistics underpins the whole of the UK and world economy. 

VIEW

Driver Facilities

Goods vehicles are essential for delivering products we need. While the focus is often on the suitability of the road network and on the efficient utilisation of the vehicles, it is equally vital not to lose sight of the importance of the driver and of driver facilities.

VIEW

Logistics and the Environment

Logistics UK is campaigning to make logistics safer, cleaner and more efficient. We seek to ensure that our members can continue to supply our towns and cities whilst mitigating any environmental impacts.

VIEW

Better Infrastructure

Develop a road and rail network that delivers reliable and resilient journey times, supporting international, national and local movements of goods.

The Role of Vans

With over 4 million vans on the UK’s roads, van drivers and operators provide a vital service to the UK economy; their contributions must be valued and their concerns and hopes for the future heard and acted upon.

VIEW

Maritime Logistics

Logistics UK is campaigning for world-class rail and road connections to our maritime ports, more effective government support to encourage mode shift to maritime, and greater use of our inland waterway network for freight. 

VIEW

Delivering for Scotland

Logistics UK is actively involved in representing the Logistics Industry’s needs with Scottish Government.

VIEW

Rail Freight

Logistics UK is campaigning for more freight to be moved by rail, to ease congestion on our busy roads and provide a low-carbon, sustainable transport option. This requires more access to the freight network; improved infrastructure; and more incentives for modal shift.

VIEW

Air Cargo

Air freight currently accounts for 40% of UK imports and exports by value and is vital for the UK economy. Logistics UK is campaigning for policies to support the air freight sector, ensuring its growth and sustainability in the long term.
