Logistics delivers ​​

Logistics is a sector delivering an increasingly safe, sustainable and efficient system of national infrastructure – creating opportunities across the UK and linking the UK to the global trade network. Spanning land, water and air, it delivers for everyone, everywhere, every day.  ​​

Logistics delivers big public value on small margins, ensuring the availability of the products households, businesses and public services rely on. It moves goods more than 200 billion tonne kilometres within the UK per year and enables the trade of more than £1 trillion of goods, while working hard to avoid adding pressure to the cost of living. This is a challenge with fuel and energy costs and a historic high, and restrictions on logistics growing.  ​​

The sector delivers smart, green and resilient growth and jobs. It contributes £163 billion to the economy each year (12% of UK non-financial GVA), employs 2.7 million people (8.2% of the UK workforce) and is becoming ever more innovative and integrated – within businesses and between logistics sites and transport modes. Its key hubs provide a catalyst for further growth and investment, helping places to thrive. ​

Logistics delivers for the future, as an essential system for growth. It underpins the whole economy, with an economic footprint three times larger than its direct GVA contribution and, by putting logistics first, with the right partnerships, regulations and investment, government can supercharge the UK. ​​

In the short-term, the logistics sector is calling for policies that enable it to manage pressures on the costs and efficiency of doing business. For the longer-term, the sector is calling for:  ​

  • Innovative and integrated infrastructure. ​

  • A fair transition to a green economy. ​

  • Skills partnership to support a thriving sector. ​

  • Trade backed as a driver of innovation and productivity. ​

What we are focused on...

Innovative and integrated infrastructure

The logistics sector is becoming ever smarter and more integrated, but the infrastructure it relies on needs to become more integrated and multi-modal too. We are calling for a national logistics transport and energy network, backed by a 30-year infrastructure strategy.


Fair transition to a green economy 

The logistics sector is embracing the decarbonisation agenda and is committed to playing its part to help the UK achieve net zero. We are calling for a national logistics transport and energy network, which must cover the energy infrastructure required for all freight transport modes.


Skills partnership to support a thriving sector 

The logistics sector is investing in recruitment and skills to respond to the rapidly changing needs of businesses. The sector needs skills partnerships that reflect the breadth of high-quality roles across logistics, which support aspiration and resilience in communities across the country.


Trade as a driver of innovation and productivity 

Logistics enables all international trade, but barriers to trade risk impacting the UK’s innovation and productivity. The logistics sector is calling for trade to be backed as a driver of progress, ensuring it is as frictionless as possible and that the UK enjoys improved international connectivity.


Generation Logistics

Generation Logistics is a sector-led, government-backed campaign that has brought the industry together to shift perceptions and encourage the next generation of talent to consider logistics as a career of choice.


Road Safety

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.
