Helping air freight deliver
UK airport capacity is a limiting factor for UK importers and exporters, air freight operators and the British economy. FTA is working closely with government , members and other stakeholders to support sustainable growth at Heathrow and other airports, and promoting a balanced approach to environmental issues.
FTA research report ‘Sky High Value’ revealed how expansion of Heathrow airport is the correct decision for air freight operators, their customers, and British business. FTA provides a platform for UK air freight suppliers and users to influence their policy positions through their British Shippers' Council. FTA also administers the Global Shippers' Forum, an international organisation for national and regional shippers’ organisations from across the world.
