Investing in the road network is the priority for the new Conservative government, according to FTA members.

Tying in with FTA’s annual Logistics Report 2015, the association showcased survey findings supporting the idea that investment is key at today’s Microlise Conference in Coventry.

In short, the highest perceived priorities included investment in road improvements, recognising the vital role of logistics in the economy and cutting fuel duty.

David Wells, FTA chief executive, said: “The new government will have to make significant decisions – and quickly – over our infrastructure and transport policies.

“FTA’s message to government is: ignore the needs of logistics at your peril.  From the factory floor to the kitchen table, it is logistics that will deliver sustainable growth.”

Microlise announced earlier that it was now a corporate sponsor of Transaid.
