Freight and logistics underpin everything we do

We understand that the success of the UK is dependent on the efficient movement of goods, services and people. The UK economy relies on freight and logistics to construct, supply and service our towns and cities in a sustainable way. Our knowledge, skills and experience cover all modes of freight transport (road, rail, water and air) and we are at the forefront of the latest thinking on key issues, such as consolidation, re-timing deliveries, construction and last-mile logistics.

Our approach to transport planning and design has rapid change in people’s mobility needs and addressing the climate emergency at its heart.

Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) Champion

We have joined CLOCS which is a national standard in construction to take health and safety beyond the hoardings of a construction site. As a Champion, we will work and communicate with clients, principal contractors, and vehicle operators to minimise the impact of construction projects and eliminate harm to communities. We are alive to the challenges that construction brings to more vulnerable road users and we can work to eliminate those problems and raise the standards of our industries.
