UKWA welcomes ‘pragmatic and on point’ vision from Dr Liam Fox MP

The UK’s leading trade association for the warehousing and logistics industry, UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association) has warmly welcomed the vision for Britain’s future beyond Brexit, outlined by International Trade Secretary and President of the Board of Trade, the Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP.

UKWA CEO Peter Ward said that Dr. Fox spoke in the best interests of business in calling for an end to political divisions and move forward with delivering Brexit.

“The logistics industry is the enabler of international trade and the view from our industry is that the prospect of a ‘no deal’ Brexit is unthinkable,” he said. “We recognize that the withdrawal agreement on the table is not perfect, but it does allow us to move ahead towards transition out of the EU. We believe, along with most business leaders, that MPs should put aside dogmatic, entrenched positions and abandon political jockeying, instead putting the future of our country – and our economy – first. We welcome Dr. Fox’s pragmatic approach and find his message absolutely on point.”

UKWA has advised its 700+ members to lobby MPs in support of the Withdrawal Agreement.
