Thursday 11 May 2023
Commenting on the Retained EU Law (REUL) bill amendment, Kate Jennings, Logistics UK’s Director of Policy, says:
“Logistics UK has been in constant contact with government over the REUL bill and the impact it could have on our industry, and recently raised members' concerns in a letter to the Prime Minister. The change in approach announced by the Secretary of State is one which should smooth over the process, but our industry still needs clarification on exactly what is to be reviewed, to ensure the ongoing security of the supply chain.”
Logistics UK is one of the UK’s leading business groups, representing logistics businesses which are vital to keeping the UK trading, and more than seven million people directly employed in the making, selling and moving of goods. With decarbonisation, Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc. Logistics UK supports, shapes and stands up for safe and efficient logistics, and is the only business group which represents the whole industry, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers whose businesses depend on the efficient movement of goods.
