Think logistics, FTA chief tells PM

[ July 18, 2016   //   ]

Freight Transport Association (FTA) chief executive David Wells has called on the new Prime Minister to ensure that goods continue to move freely between the UK and the rest of the world.

In a letter to the Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Mr Wells said the UK economy relies on the ability to import and export goods and it is “essential therefore that the UK Government secures arrangements which protect our ability to deliver this”.

He has asked to meet the Prime Minister “at an early opportunity” to discuss how FTA can work with and support the Government to deliver the best result for UK business. He also sent her a copy of FTA’s 2016 Logistics Report – an annual document which provides an overview of the challenges facing the sector.
