Keep logistics issues at the top table with Logistics UK’s Executive Membership

Wednesday 01 May 2024

In today’s economy, according to Forbes, “successful businesses are the ones that have mastered the art of logistics.” And to ensure that the sector is at the heart of all corporate decision-making, business group Logistics UK has launched a new membership category for senior business leaders to create opportunities to share best practice and debate the issues affecting industry that can be addressed with logistics solutions.

“Until the pandemic hit, many businesses did not include logistics in their business-critical decision-making,” explains Logistics UK’s Policy Director Kevin Green, “but it is clear that our sector is at the heart of all economic activity around the world – after all, without logistics nothing moves. Business leaders have recognised the positive impact that including logistics as part of business planning and development can have on performance and profitability: our new Executive Membership programme enables senior leaders from all sectors to discuss the challenges facing them, and work together to identify ways to develop a more robust, interconnected economy.”

Logistics UK’s new strategic Executive Membership offers a range of benefits for industry leaders, including quality insight, analysis and information via exclusive reports, senior level events and networking opportunities including topical dinner debates and round tables, bespoke advice and support to maximise the impact of any logistics operation. As Green continues, the bespoke service enables board-level interactions with policy makers and opinion formers and has already attracted participation from key industry names including Asda, CEVA, Tesco and Wincanton:

“Our new Executive Membership offers members a comprehensive suite of services designed to keep them ahead of key trends, policy issues and commercial risks across the supply chain. Those businesses which have already joined our member cohort are already benefitting from the strategic insight and opportunities which networking at board level can bring, and are best prepared to handle the challenges and commercial risks which come from operating in today’s volatile and unpredictable economy. Our offering is designed to enhance and strengthen your business operations, whichever sector you operate in – can your business afford to lose what could be a key business advantage by ignoring the strength that effective logistics can bring to your business?”
