Santander and FTA release report on logistics sector

8th Jul 2019 3 min read

The Transport and Logistics sector is highly sensitive to the prevailing economic trends, since it powers the distribution of other businesses’ goods to markets around the globe.


The FTA Logistics Report 2019, produced in association with Santander, is an authoritative and comprehensive source of UK freight and logistics facts, figures and policy analysis. 

It has been compiled using the findings of FTA’s annual Logistics Industry Survey, which brings together insights and data from 500 freight and logistics businesses operating in the UK and internationally. 

It also contains data from a wide range of respected sources and bespoke analysis commissioned by FTA as well as input from FTA’s policy experts and Santander’s industry experts.

Uncertainty has been the inevitable reality for UK businesses over the last year, especially for those operating in transport and logistics.  

In order that UK businesses can continue their operations with as little disruption as possible, it is vital that we work closely with the transport & logistics industry. 

The importance of the sector must not be undervalued, which is why we remain committed to continuing our work with the FTA and businesses across the sector in 2019 and beyond.
