First 100 days: Prioritise logistics

07 July 2024

The incoming government should partner with the logistics sector to develop Labour’s promised industrial strategy, as logistics can boost productivity for all areas of UK PLC, according to business group Logistics UK.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE David Wells OBE said: “Logistics underpins all sectors of the economy to deliver for households, businesses and public services, every day, and is a major sector in its own right, employing 8% of the UK workforce. As a result, logistics is ideally placed to help the new government to get the economy moving again, providing its needs can be accommodated in the new government’s industrial strategy.

“By involving our members in the development of the planned industrial strategy and the government’s missions, we are confident that logistics can deliver productivity gains to supercharge the economy by up to £8 billion a year.

“It is vital that we power up the country while reestablishing the UK’s industrial strength in a clean, green manner.”
