Improvements in logistics drive down the cost of vehicle manufacturing and significantly increase productivity. SMMT supports members improve the efficiency of their automotive logistics operations through a range of initiatives.

- Coordinate industry collaboration
- Respond to UK and European legislation
- Discuss common issues and solutions
- Drive initiatives in logistics and supply chain efficiency
