FTA delivers Freight Manifesto

Tags: ,


The Freight Transport Association delivered its ‘London Elections 2016 – Freight Manifesto’ to the Mayoral candidates in the city on 25 Mrch, along with a box of trucks, illustrating how many freight vehicles it would take to build and furnish an average sized three bedroom house.

In the Manifesto, the Freight Transport Association outlines how all London’s needs require freight movements and looks closely at the example of housing, stating that in order to build just one house at least 34 commercial vehicles would be required.

In addition, the Association urged mayoral candidates to avoid simplistic blanket approaches such as HGV bans, saying that such a policy would massively increase the cost of doing business in London – especially construction – without achieving the safety gains assumed.

David Wells – FTA Chief Executive said: “Freight is vital to the future of London. Cities are built by freight and they live on freight. The social importance of the logistics industry is all too often overlooked.”
