Logistics UK appoints Jennings to head policy team


Logistics UK has announced the appointment of Kate Jennings as its new Policy Director, who will join the leading business group at the end of June.

Jennings, whose extensive policy career has included both government and business sector roles, will lead Logistics UK’s team responsible for the organisation’s policy and representation work with both government and members as its executive director. 

“Logistics UK has a well-respected reputation for research-based, factual policy positions which reflect the wishes of its members, and I am looking forward to working with the organisation’s expert policy team to expand its sphere of influence with government and other stakeholders,” she said. “The past few years have seen a growing awareness of the value of logistics among all sectors of society, and I am looking forward to leading the team as we continue to achieve even more for our members.” 

Most recently employed as the Policy Director of the Railway Industry Association, Jennings has extensive experience of other transport modes, gained during her time at the Department for Transport, where she has worked in aviation and rail policy, as well as the development of road transport policy relating to exiting the EU.  

“Kate brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Logistics UK from her time working in government and in the private sector,” said David Wells, Logistics UK’s Chief Executive, “I am certain that her insight will help the team achieve even more for our members and I look forward to working with her as we continue to drive the business forwards.”
