FTA issues Brexit manifesto

The Freight Transport Association has issued its Brexit manifesto for the logistics industry. The manifesto outlines ten key asks collated from responses from the association’s members.

Miebach’s UK expansion “especially useful” after BrexitOne key issue outlined in the manifesto is keeping a “ barrier-free and frictionless access to the EU market post-Brexit.”

“Britain has always been a trading nation,” said James Hookham, the FTA’s deputy chief executive. “And we are firmly behind Mrs May’s vision of a global Britain post-Brexit, with strong international relationships both inside and outside the European Union.

“We believe that the logistics industry has a key role to play in ensuring that Britain’s new trading relationships are as efficient and effective as possible and urge Mrs May and her team to ensure that the Brexit agreement they secure will enable our members to provide the service that industry so desperately needs, without excessive border delays or bureaucratic red tape.”
