Response to COVID-19 National Logistics Forum Resources Database required


As the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) continues the work of establishing the National Logistics Forum Resources Database, it is asking companies to register any extra capacity they may have, as it may be of benefit to other companies.  

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, now we are also seeing a response from our own industry,” emphasised Mick Curran, Chief Executive Officer, CILT.

“On 16th 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 the road transport and logistics sectors.  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.

Interested parties, please contact the COVID-19 National Logistics Forum, by email:

If transport, logistics or storage providers have any spare capacity at all, please click on the link below and fill out the form.  It will only be by working together that we will get through this. Keep Safe,” added Mick.
