UK infrastructure and transport policies need to evolve, FTA report claims
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has released its 2015 Logistics Report featuring analysis of the transport and logistics industry over the last 12 months.
The annual report shows a "mixed outlook for the global economy, with world events, more sluggish growth and falling demand for oil and other commodities reducing expectations".
"Our members tell us that business confidence is lower, beyond the short-term, as uncertainty over future economic policies and the impact of the Euro Zone are, once more, causes of concern", FTA chief executive David Wells underlined.
"The new Government will have to make significant decisions – and quickly – over our infrastructure and transport policies; FTA is ready to inform that process", he added. "Our message to Government is: ignore the needs of logistics at your peril. From the factory floor to the kitchen table, it is logistics that will deliver sustainable growth".
