Markets to dictate mode, says FTA

The FTA has told the Transport Select Committee that each transport mode has a role to play in the supply chain of the future, and that the choice of mode should be dictated by the market.

The FTA presented evidence to the Transport Select Committee of MPs on major issues affecting the road freight sector, including emissions reduction, cabotage, tolling and a vignette system for road user charging.

FTA director of policy Karen Dee, said: “We are pleased that the minister understands the overwhelming importance of efficient logistics, and heartened by his stance on cabotage and the need for a fair European playing field.  We will await the Committee’s findings with interest.”
