Key Messages

We are committed to working with governments, training, and education providers to make a career in logistics an attractive option - creating the next generation of home-grown drivers. 

We face a chronic driver shortage in  the UK, that without further action from both Government and industry risks putting the brakes on our economic recovery. 
Commercial vehicle drivers are the backbone of our economy yet every day they are up against a lack of safe and secure parking areas without access to toilet and shower facilities where they can rest while on the road.

We will not fully tackle the root causes of the driver shortage until driver facilities and welfare are significantly improved.

Local, regional, and national governments must recognise the importance of driver facilities. 
We are working with governments and key environmental stakeholders to ensure that our members are equipped with the support and knowledge they need to make the move towards net zero.  

Government must commit to creating a commercial vehicle decarbonization roadmap, accommodating the diversity of vehicle operators.

Clean Air Zone policy should be reformed so that there is a sufficient supply of “compliant” vehicles which accommodate the needs of all businesses, especially SMEs.
