Meet Our Policy and Campaigns Team

FTA’s Policy Team engages daily with our members to help shape the organisation’s policy positions so we can lobby decision makers on the issues that matter most to all of logistics. As well as leading on key individual areas of expertise, our policy specialists are also responsible for 13 regional freight councils, covering the whole of the UK, meaning we work with and represent members on both local and national high-priority concerns.
