Most UK freight and logistics firms oppose Brexit

BrexitTwo-thirds of supply chain firms in the UK believe their businesses could suffer if the country leaves the EU.

The poll by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) found that 65% of respondents said the logistics, supply chain and transport industry as a whole will have a stronger future if the UK remains in the EU, with 58 per cent saying their own company would do better.

The responses also reveal that 64 per cent of the 676 individuals polled believe that the UK should remain in the EU.

"The message from our members reveals that, both as individuals and from a business perspective, a majority are in favour of the UK remaining in the EU," said Kevin Richardson, CILT's chief executive.
"The Institute does not align itself with any campaign and respects that our members do have split views on this issue."

"However, part of our role as a professional body is to inform and the conclusion from this member survey suggests that those involved in our industry believe we will be stronger by staying in the EU," he added.
