News from FTA – Name Change to Logistics UK

On 27 July 2020, FTA will be changing its name to Logistics UK. FTA has always represented the whole sector, with members from road, rail, sea and air, as well as those with goods to move like retailers and manufacturers.  As you know, they originally planned the change to take place earlier in the year but postponed it during the COVID-19 crisis to focus on supporting their members. 

FTA will not be changing its focus or the important services, support and advice it provides to its 18,000+ member businesses right across the logistics sector. 

The new website, logistics.org.uk, will be live from 27 July 2020. The phone numbers will remain the same and email addresses will revert automatically; for reference, you can reach the press team by dialling 01892 552255 or emailing press.office@logistics.org.uk.             

David Wells, Chief Executive at FTA, comments:

“FTA is strong because of its size and scale and because we already represent all of logistics, a very large sector critical to the success of UK plc. The name change to Logistics UK is a natural progression and makes it more obvious to stakeholders, like policymakers and young people looking to develop a career in logistics, that we are the only business group that represents the whole industry. I believe this change will strengthen our position, and give us a great opportunity to achieve even more for members in the months and years to come.”
