FTA launches coronavirus help site

Tunbridge Wells, UK: The FTA has launched a website for transport operators with advice and guidance about the coronavirus.

The site, www.fta.co.uk/coronavirus, provides an overview of essential information and advice for the industry, the support provided by FTA, and the business group’s asks of government at such a critical time.

“Logistics as a sector is resilient and adaptable, but with the challenges ahead, it is vital that we keep our members as informed as possible so they can plan effectively and keep the UK’s supply chain secure,” Elizabeth de Jong, policy director, FTA. said.

In addition to links to important government and industry advice, the portal will include the latest information from FTA’s Coronavirus Logistics Impact Survey, which will provide a snapshot of confidence in the sector and highlight industry concerns.

The association requests to government at such a critical time can also be viewed, as well as details of support services which the organisation can provide to businesses, including those tackling compliance issues or the provision of a rapid strategic supply chain review.

“With so much uncertainty affecting trading conditions, the main focus for FTA in the coming weeks will be protecting the supply chain,” de Jong said.

“We know that the UK has one of the strongest supply chains in the world, and our focus is ensuring that its resilience can be maintained.  The coming weeks will pose the biggest challenge our industry has faced for many years, but FTA will be doing whatever it can to support one of the nation’s most important industries.”
