FTA advises road investment to be made government priority

The Logistics Report 2015 - the latest analysis of the ideas, news and views that shaped the transport and logistics industry in the last 12 months from the Freight Transport Association (FTA) - advises the government to make road investment a top priority. 

Launching the paper at the Microlise Transport Conference in Coventry last week (May 20th), FTA chief executive officer David Wells said ignoring the needs of the nation's logistics firms could be disastrous. 

He acknowledged that the newly-formed Conservative government will have to make significant decisions very quickly, but emphasised that it is logistics that is capable of delivering sustainable growth for the UK. 

"The FTA Logistics Report provides a timely and essential analysis of the short and long-term health of a major enabler of our economy and lifestyle - logistics," he commented, adding that this is crucial at such a crucial time for national finances and society.
