Around two-thirds of UK executives in the freight logistics industry believe Britain should stay in the European Union.
Results from a recently conducted membership survey by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) show 65% of respondents believe the supply chain, logistics and transport industry will have a better future if the UK remains in the EU.
The 676 respondents were asked if they believed their business would be in a stronger position if the UK rejected a Brexit, and 58% agreed.
CILT chief executive Kevin Richardson said: “The message from our members reveals that, both as individuals and from a business perspective, the majority are in favour of the UK remaining in the EU.
“The institute does not align itself with any campaign and respects that our members have split view on this issue. However, part of our role as a professional body is to inform.”
Respondents were also asked from an individual perspective whether the UK should remain in the EU, with 64% saying the country should remain and 36% believing it should leave.
