The British International Freight Association (BIFA), the trade association for UK freight forwarding and logistics companies, has urged its members to respond to the UK Government’s aviation policy consultation process.

As the UK prepares its long-term aviation policy running through 2050, the government has sought industry input into developing its strategy.

The consultation paper pledges to explore various ways to facilitate the growth of airfreight, for example, through making best use of existing capacity at airports, supporting the implementation of more digital documentation and through continuing to support the third runway at Heathrow.

BIFA has confirmed that it is encouraging its members to be aware of and respond to this consultation as the government will – it said – base its aviation strategy for the period up to 2050 upon aspects of the responses it receives.

The consultation period will last until April 11. The final white paper version of the aviation strategy will be published in the middle of 2019.

More information on the consultation document can be found here.
