“Logistics UK is urging the government to recognise the vital role the logistics industry plays in supporting the UK as it recovers and rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic and transitions to a net zero emission economy; the 2021 Comprehensive Spending Review must include significant investment into the nation’s transport infrastructure,” said Logistics UK Policy director, Elizabeth de Jong.

“With the UK seeking new international trading agreements post-Brexit, the need for world-class infrastructure has never been greater to help the UK take its new place in the global economy.

“This includes the need to invest in roads nationwide to reduce congestion, as well as improving driver facilities to attract HGV drivers into the occupation and increased rail capacity to encourage greater rail freight use.

“Investment in IT systems at our border is needed for smooth trade and investment in connected and automated vehicles to increase our competitiveness.

“With the logistics industry committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050, Logistics UK is also urging the government to prioritise funding to accelerate the development of alternative fuels across all transport modes, and to commit to delivering the energy supplies needed.”

Logistics UK represents more than 7m people directly employed in the making, selling and moving of goods.
