The Department for Transport has published a policy paper – the ‘Future of Freight: a long-term plan’, a cross-government plan for the UK freight transport sector.
Developed in partnership with industry, this plan sets out the government’s long-term vision for the freight sector.
It identifies the main challenges, objectives and actions that need to be taken in the following five priority areas:
- National Freight Network (NFN)
- enabling the transition to net zero
- people and skills
- data and technology.
