The transport and logistics industry is made up of both freight logistics and passenger transport.

This is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week industry which supports all sectors within the UK economy.

According to the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES), the transport and storage (ie. warehousing) sectors combined employ 1.45 million people. This makes up 5% of total employment within the UK; this is earmarked to grow significantly by 2020. 

Businesses operating in the sector cover, air, land and water transport as well as postal and courier and support activities. The sector is dominated by small to medium sized enterprises which demand ever increasing skills and knowledge from their staff, as the businesses respond to the pressures of the modern supply chain.
