FTA's Logistics Performance Tracker
FTA has launched the Logistics Performance Tracker – a survey we will be sending every two weeks – to monitor the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on logistics and the health and needs of the sector.
The Coronavirus pandemic has had an extreme and far-reaching effect on all our personal and working lives, and logistics has been at the heart of enabling the economy to continue and supplying the goods people need.
Our survey work so far has enabled us to make effective cases for the many easements and relaxations agreed with Government – including those on testing, drivers’ hours and driver licensing.
We have launched the Logistics Performance Tracker so we can make the case for the sector on your behalf. Please take five minutes to complete the questions that apply to you and your business.
As the wider economy begins to reopen, FTA needs your responses to:
- Ensure we understand how logistics is recovering and whether parts of the sector are under stress.
- Tailor the information we provide you and effectively target our representation of businesses’ needs.
- Ensure Government understands the support companies require and what barriers are limiting a return to growth.
Please rest assured that FTA will comply with the GDPR and that the data collected through the survey is anonymous and you are not asked for any company or personal identification.

- Survey 1 (17 June 2020): Around 360 businesses completed the first Logistics Performance Tracker, averaging a positive score of 6.08 (out of 10.00) on how confident they felt about the business outlook for their companies in the coming six months. They also rated the current financial health of their company at 6.63 (out of 10.00) and said Government support in the forms of loans, grant and tax breaks, business rate relief and the extension of the furlough scheme would help their businesses return to normal levels of performance.
- Survey 2 (26 June 2020): Around 200 businesses completed the second Logistics Performance Tracker, averaging a positive score of 6.06 (out of 10.00) on how confident they felt about the business outlook for their companies in the coming six months, little changed from the first survey. Nearly 80% said business rate relief would help their businesses return to normal levels of performance, deferring VAT/NI and corporation tax, extending the furloughing scheme and renegotiation of fixed costs, such as leases and insurance, were also important.
