Leading on Logistics podcast

The new Executive Member podcast from Logistics UK brings you expert insight from – and analysis of – the country’s logistics sector. 

Various issues have thrown the logistics industry into the spotlight in recent years, from a crisis in sourcing skills and fresh talent, to the political pressures emanating from Brexit and the rocky road to Net Zero. The sector finds itself at a crossroads, where the need to decarbonise is growing increasingly urgent. 

Over this series, we’ll be talking to people at the heart of the issues, including industry heads and those pulling the levers of power about the issues facing not just the freight sector itself but millions of British consumers too.


Leading on Logistics is presented by Mike Young, Head of News at Broadcast Revolution.

Young has been a BBC journalist, producer and presenter on shows including BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast, Drivetime and Morning Reports, BBC Radio Nottingham, the Smart Consumer podcast and most recently at BBC Radio 4’s You & Yours.
