The crisis that we now find ourselves in as a result of COVID-19 is one that can only be solved by working together. We have already seen an unprecedented response from the government, we are also seeing a response from our own industry.
On 16 April 2020, the inaugural meeting of the COVID-19 National Logistics Forum was held. This forum is comprised of representatives of both government departments and industry. At the first meeting it was clear that in some parts of our industry there is spare capacity, whilst in others there is a need for this capacity to keep the supply lines open.
What was required was a database open to all that will advertise what capacity is available, this is such a database. We are asking the members of our industry to post on the database any and all spare capacity that they have. This information will be available to all and will result in spare capacity being utilised and our supply lines kept open.
