The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has launched an online member-to-member platform to support businesses across the industry through the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The resource will provide members of the organisation with the chance to link businesses in need of logistics staff or fleet resources with available workers or vehicle capacity.

Kevin Green, Director of Marketing & Communications, comments: “Following the success of FTA’s #LogisticsHelpsLogistics campaign, which used the hashtag to link businesses in need of logistics personnel or fleet resource with available workers or vehicle capacity via social media, we wanted to make it as simple as possible for our members to take these conversations forward, in addition to sparking new connections.

“With the social media campaign reaching more than 1.3 million logistics workers within just five days, we are confident the launch of FTA’s dedicated member portal will make a significant difference in helping to keep goods moving across the UK during the outbreak. If you have personnel or fleet resources available for hire, or alternatively you are looking to fill a shortage of workers or vehicles, we urge you to visit the online member platforms and connect with your industry peers.”

The first forum is for FTA members to share and discuss availability of their fleet or personnel during the COVID-19 period.

The second forum is for members to share and discuss the resource they require.
