Sector plan for health and safety in logistics and transport

The sector includes distribution centres, road-haulage, postal and courier services, ports and airports. There are around 900 000 people working in logistics alone, with the number involved in road haulage and ‘final-mile’ delivery activities rising.

The sector contributes around £70 billion to the economy, around 4% of the total, with the prospect of further sustained growth.

This plan covers the current position, priorities and what HSE will do to help Great Britain work well.
