FTA and the environment
Its undeniable that the logistics industry can have a high impact on the environment. From habitat fragmentation of transport infrastructure development to accidental oil spillages and plastic refuse in the marine world. Add to this pollution from air and road freight. Transport accounts for around a quarter of UK green-house-gas emissions. The good news is that the logistics industry has a greater awareness of these issues than ever before, and in almost every sector steps are being taken to mitigate against their effects through leading edge technology or best practice.
