The FTA is changing its name to Logistics UK on 27 July 2020.

The name change, exclusively revealed by motortransport.co.uk in February this year, was originally set for May but was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The association which has 18,000-plus members hailing from the road, rail, sea and air freight sectors, is also launching a new website www.logistics.org.uk.

The new website will be live from 27 July and phone numbers will remain the same, email addresses will revert automatically.

Announcing the move, David Wells, Chief Executive at FTA, said: “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.”
