Brighter Thinking for the transport and logistics sector

Balancing UK growth with operational challenges
Transport & logistics accounts for around £55 billion turnover, 5% of GDP and employs over 1.7 million people in the UK. Recent industry research shows that confidence remains high in the sector, in line with encouraging forecasts of 2.5% growth for the UK economy as a whole. That said, operators are aware of the challenges ahead, especially in relation to price sensitivity, oil prices, wage inflation and a possible rise in interest rates.
