The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has today offered its congratulations and its advice to the newly appointed Transport Secretary, Geoff Hoon.
FTA Chief Executive, Theo de Pencier, said, Mr Hoon takes on the transport portfolio at a critical time for the logistics industry. The credit crunch, overseas competition and, of course, the high rates of fuel duty are all taking their toll on an industry which keeps British business moving. FTA and its members will be looking to Mr Hoon to show leadership and to value the vital role that logistics plays in delivering the UKs economy.
