As one of the UK’s largest trade associations, FTA represents the interests of transport companies moving goods and provides them with support through safe, sustainable and efficient logistics. As well as members from across the road, rail, sea and air industries, FTA represents the interests of freight service buyers such as retailers and manufacturers, ensuring everyone can rely on the efficient movement of goods.
Alongside raising awareness of the industry and providing best practice advice to ensure compliance, FTA work to improve efficiency and sustainability by providing logistics professionals with additional training and assisting companies with smooth efficient transport operations.
The members of the FTA operate over 200,000 lorries (which is nearly half the UK fleet!). Collectively they deliver more than 90% of freight moved by rail and 70% of the UK’s visible exports by sea and air.
