Freight Transport Association (FTA) is one of the UK’s largest trade associations and represents the transport interests of companies moving goods by road, rail, sea and air

Boasting a rich heritage, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) has been supporting the interests of the transport industry since 1889.

FTA specialises in delivering safe, sustainable and efficient logistics. We do this in the following ways:

FTA members operate more than 200,000 lorries – almost half the UK fleet. In addition, our members deliver over 90 per cent of freight moved by rail; and 70 per cent of UK visible exports by sea and air.

So as an FTA member, you know you’re in good company and safe hands.
