Queues of nose-to-tail trucks and lorries going nowhere seem to be a part of the UK calendar but think about all the journeys that do go to plan. Even when panic buying set in at the beginning of the pandemic, and more recently, when staff shortages and delays at borders occurred, most things got where they were meant to.

Logistics UK is the organisation that represents the business needs of the logistics industry to government at local, national, and European level, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers who depend on the efficient movement of goods.

Its members are a cross-section of the industry including hauliers, suppliers, retail companies, freight forwarders and handlers, vehicle manufacturers and local authorities.

Such a remit means this large company, formerly known as the Freight Transport Association and based in Tunbridge Wells, employs staff with a wide range of skills and experience. They work in sales, contract management, vehicle inspection, marketing, policy, customer services and more.

Managers at Logistics UK operate an open-door policy and have a career development programme to help their people progress. Staff get an annual appraisal and regular interim reviews. As well as face-to-face meetings and email, internal communication makes use of Yammer and Teams.
