THE Freight Transport Association (FTA) is calling on George Osborne to support the freight industry by cutting fuel duty and investing in training and driver facilities in his autumn statement — which the chancellor is set to deliver on Wednesday, November 25.

The FTA, which represents 15,000 members in the logistics sector, sent its submission to the chancellor this week, together with a letter from its chief executive David Wells, highlighting three key issues for the industry.

These were: the current skills shortage, fuel duty levels, and infrastructure investment.
