Logistics UK Policy Councils

Central to Logistics UK’s democratic structure, the policy positions adopted by Logistics UK are determined by the members of its Councils. Over 300 managers and leaders from across road freight attend Logistics UK’s Freight Councils throughout the UK. 


Logistics UK local Policy Councils convene three times a year across the country and all members are invited to attend, offering them the chance to:

  • Learn about policies being proposed by UK, regional and local government and their agencies and the implications of these for logistics operations – aimed at helping future-proof members’ operations.
  • Help decide Logistics UK’s response to proposals – ensuring the needs of members’ companies are taken into consideration in what we say.
  • Network with peers in the industry, discussing topics ranging from key and operational issues to national transport policy matters.

These Policy Councils meet in 13 locations across the UK. Nominated members are then able to participate in the UK-level Road Council.  There are also Air, Rail, Water and Shippers Councils that all members can join, as well as our Working Groups. In addition, President's Council is a senior forum aimed at helping build the profile and reputation of UK logistics.
