Huge success for the freight industry

Transport and distribution firms have performed outstandingly throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games, says the Freight Transport Association.

“The Olympics have been a huge success for not only the athletes but also for the freight industry,” said Natalie Chapman, FTA head of policy for London.

“The years of planning that FTA member put in ahead of the Games has certainly has paid off, and  it looks like the clear messages that Transport for London have been providing have been heeded.
 
“FTA members seem to have coped very well, the roads are much quieter than expected, and the predicted transport chaos did not materialise and some parts of the Olympic Route Network traffic has been better than usual… We have been in daily contact with Transport for London who has helped us keep our members up-to-date with the latest information.”

 Peter Hendy

Last week, London’s transport commissioner Peter Hendy said: “I’ve also been tremendously impressed with the response from both businesses and the freight and distribution industry. Their planning has ensured that London’s restaurants, bars and businesses have had bread in their shops and beer in their pumps, and we thank them for the way they have responded to the Olympic-sized challenge.”
