Our Transport & Logistics sector approach

Today’s business owners in the transport and logistics sector continue to overcome many barriers, which need to be managed successfully to build a strong and profitable business. While industry revenue is expected to increase in the future, supply chains have become increasingly complex, and the industry has been adapting to satisfy new customer demands. Low operating margins, tough competition, driver shortages and rising costs are making it challenging for businesses to make a sustainable profit especially in an industry where competition remains fierce. There is also an increased emphasis on the need for technology, to not only maintain the reputation of the company driving efficiencies but to meet customer needs and requirements throughout the sector.

Due to the growing importance of ESG Scores, it is crucial for the transport and logistics industry to acknowledge their significant contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Operators have an important role to play to minimise the environmental impact of their distribution solutions by implementing sustainable and transparent supply chain practices
