  • Network Rail
  • Wiltshire Association of Local Councils
  • Campaign for Better Transport
  • Campaign to Protect Rural England
  • Mendip Quarry Producers Association
  • Massey Wilcox Transport Ltd
  • Local hauliers and distribution companies

  • To encourage freight best practice and to develop the environmentally sensitive, economic and efficient delivery of goods throughout Wiltshire, including Swindon and its administrative boundaries
  • To recommend integrated freight strategies for Wiltshire and Swindon, as part of the Local Transport Plan process
  • To develop and agree an action plan that underpins the recommended freight strategies
  • To highlight concerns and problems, progress initiatives and agree a common approach to freight issues through partnership working
