Transportation and Logistics

Transport and logistics plays a critical role in the UK economy. Indeed data shows that the link between economic growth and transport is critical to the industry. Data also shows that UK passenger transport contributes over £23 billion to the UK’s GVA.

The main challenges in the industry impact on the environment, accessibility, safety & security and supporting the economy. Needless to say, this sector is the biggest contributor of carbon dioxide emissions and the challenge is to find sustainable ways to cause less harm to the environment while saving costs. Indeed the threat that continues to jeapardise the industry is terrorism. Many believe we need to have cross-border agreements between countries to introduce deterrents accompanied by new methods to deal with it when it does occur.
In the air transport sector, airports and airport authorities are subject to economic regulation and the great debate must be how they ensure competitive and effective regulations given the role the public purse plays.

Many will recall the demise of Laker Airways in 1982. Larry was a part of a strategic team that was set up by the then Touche Ross & Co to deal with the highly successful anti-trust litigation and consequent high distribution to the Laker creditors.
