Policy Campaign Spotlight – April 2021

Recent highlights of campaigns run by Logistics UK's policy team


Logistics UK has continued its engagement with the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS), building on the letters we sent to ministers and Secretaries of State. We are working on short-term easements with DfT while still pressing for long-term, mutually agreed solutions to enable touring companies to continue serving their customers across multiple EU venues. Own-account operations (eg, in the sport, orchestra or live broadcasting space) are also a focus of our attention. Recent engagement includes active participation in DCMS working groups and ministerial meetings in which we highlighted the need for an EU-wide solution, as opposed to focusing on a small number of European countries that would not suit the nature of touring and the economics of making a tour profitable.


Building on our long-term work, particularly over the last few years, Logistics UK has been collaborating with the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE) on new standards for qualifications within the sector, as well as looking at ways to take advantage of a more flexible approach to apprenticeships. Last month, we also launched our new Skills Hub on the logistics.org.uk website, which provides members with advice on various skills and employment issues through resources such as the Skills and Employment Report, the Employment Action Group and our Member-to-Member Forum.
