As the leading trade association for the warehousing and logistics industry, UKWA works hard engaging with policy makers and influencers, to ensure that the voice of the industry is heard at all levels. In recent times, UKWA has been vocal on a range of issues directly affecting the industry, particularly on the impact of Brexit.

Customs & Excise

UKWA has continued to engage with HMRC to understand the implications of the new post-Brexit regulations and the likely impact on members, as well as feeding back to government views from the membership on initiatives such as the Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme.

Labour & Skills shortage

UKWA’s member survey on immigrant labour demonstrated that Brexit has driven a ‘Brexodus’ of immigrants from the UK, exacerbating the industry labour shortage; these results were confirmed by UKWA Logistics Users group. Such evidence assists UKWA in communicating members’ concern to government.

Infrastructure & Urban Logistics

UKWA’s research papers on the shortage of real estate and development land in the UK and the challenges of feeding cities as populations rise and new food formats demand constant replenishment, have both been well received by commentators and have put these issues firmly on the government agenda.

UKWA is a member of the CBI and other leading business organisations, which means that the Association has a voice in the development of national policy, and as a member you have access to business reports and other information generated by these influential bodies.
