The Impact of Logistics Sites in the UK

The impact of Logistics Sites in the UK is an independent report by Frontier Economics, commissioned by Amazon and supported by Logistics UK, which provides an analysis of the economic, social and environmental impact of the logistics industry in the UK.

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the important role of the sector in ensuring the availability of goods to consumers, supporting small business resilience and facilitating new supply chains to enable the distribution of Covid-19 tests, vaccines, and personal protective equipment (PPE). This report looks at the current state of the sector and its evolution over the last ten years. In particular, it assesses the logistics sector’s contribution towards the economic and social outcomes of local communities across the UK, as well as how this aligns with the UK Government’s ambitions to deliver high-quality jobs and support the economy’s transition to net zero.
