Logistics UK: “Levelling Up Must Include Road Transport.”

SPEAKING on the government’s recent Levelling Up White Paper, Alexandra Herdman, public policy manager at Logistics UK, commented: “The White Paper is an opportunity for logistics to showcase its vital role in providing skilled jobs and economic growth. The sector links global trade to British businesses and their customers, with hubs such as maritime ports, airports, inland road and rail distribution centres acting as drivers of growth and development.

“To maximise these opportunities and support effective supply chains, the government must ensure that the necessary logistics infrastructure, including warehouses, driver welfare facilities and sufficient lorry parking is considered in its plans.”
