Transport for the North to create freight strategy

Tags: , ,


Transport for the North (TfN), a group comprising major northern cities in the UK, is working on development of a new pan-regional freight and logistics strategy for an integrated transport network in the north.

The Northern Freight and Logistics Strategy will probably be a part of the updated Northern Transport Strategy that will be presented to the Chancellor by the 2016 Budget.

TfN executive board member David Brown said: “This is the north doing things differently – the public and private sectors working together and looking holistically at what we can do to boost our freight and logistics potential.

“Despite the fact that up to 60% of containers entering the UK are destined for the midlands and the north, 90% arrive through southern ports. This needs to be rebalanced. An efficient, sustainable freight industry is of massive importance to economic growth, supporting countless industries.
