This article presents reports on government policy-related developments concerning the business logistics and the transportation sectors in Great Britain, as of June 2002. The Department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions has announced, on April 29, 2002, that it is working closely with the Her Majesty's Treasury and the Her Majesty's Customs and Excise in taking forward the government's policy that all truck road-users in Great Britain, regardless of their nationality, should contribute on a fairer and more equal basis towards the costs that they impose when using roads in Great Britain. On April 26, 2002, a consultation was announced on government assistance towards the capital cost of providing freight handling facilities to move goods by inland waterway, rather than road, through the Freight Facilities Grant scheme.
