Logistics businesses urge Welsh government to plan for the future

Logistics businesses have urged the Welsh government to provide a clear future plan for logistics at a roundtable hosted by Logistics UK and attended by Welsh Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters MS. 

At the event, hosted at Owens Group’s facility in Cardiff Bay, members and industry leaders discussed the key priorities for the Wales National Freight and Logistics Plan, due to be published in 2024.  

Points of discussion included practical measures to ensure a green, integrated and effective multimodal logistics network as well as developing best practice for last-mile delivery and supporting future skills development in Wales.    

Following the meeting, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, David Wells OBE, commented: “Our members, who are responsible for transporting everything that Welsh businesses and consumers need every day, are keen to see progress on a national plan which optimises the benefits our sector brings to the Welsh economy and communities.  

“To ensure the plan is effective, and achievable, continued communication with our industry is vital.   

“The roundtable meeting was extremely productive, and it is encouraging to see such positive engagement from both the Welsh government and industry.  

“With many practicable objectives highlighted in the meeting, Logistics UK will now continue to work with the Deputy Minister’s office to ensure that the key points discussed are taken forwards and that the Freight and Logistics Plan works for the businesses that keep the Welsh economy running daily.”
