Freight industry reaction to airport decision

Tags: ,


The Aiports Commission to reject the so-called ‘Boris Island’ airport plan, has been broadly welcomed by the freight industry.

The Freight Transport Association’s director  for global and European policy said: “Air freight accounts for about 40 per cent of UK imports and exports by value and is an essential mode of transport for many industry sectors.

“FTA would like to emphasise to the Airports Commission that air cargo is crucially important to British businesses as importers and exporters, and is a key enabler for growth and the future success of the UK economy.”

The British International Freight Association’s (BIFA), the trade association for UK freight forwarders and logistics providers, welcomed the decision.

BIFA director general Robert Keen commented: “BIFA’s members hope that the decision will allow the commission to focus on the three most appropriate and sustainable solutions in the lead up to its final report in the summer of 2015.

“BIFA will continue to submit our thoughts to the commission relative to the constraints imposed by capacity limitations, UK global connectivity, the importance of air freight and the key facilitative role played by the freight forwarder.”
