COVID-19 working Good Practice Guide for logistics

Leading business group, FTA, and professional membership body, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), have launched the Good Practice Guide for COVID-19, a document sharing practical advice from their member organisations on how transport operators and logistics businesses can restart their operations safely, effectively and quickly as the nation emerges from lockdown.  

As logistics businesses seek to restart their operations, protecting their workforce from contracting COVID-19 is their priority. Using practical examples shared by the members of FTA and CILT, the Good Practice Guide for COVID-19 is a vital tool for transport operators and other businesses wanting to deliver safe environments for their staff and visitors to their facilities. 

Designed to be used in conjunction with the official UK government guidance on Safer Workplaces, the document covers key considerations including risk assessments; social distancing in the workplace; cleaning of the workplace; and PPE and face coverings.


Contributions to the guide have been received from some of Britain’s biggest business names, including Wincanton, Maritime, Hermes and DHL. 

The government’s guidance on Safer Workplaces can be viewed online here.


Access to this guide is available to all UK logistics businesses.
