ABSTRACT
Background information about the transportation industry in Great Britain was presented in this article. A estimated 1.7 million people work in the transportation sector. The transportation sector is the sixth largest sector in the economy of Great Britain, accounting for 5.8 percent of the country's output and a similar proportion of employment. The sector is spread throughout the country, broadly reflecting concentrations of population, but with a particularly strong concentration in and around London, England. Total employment will increase by 57,000 between 1998 and 2009. In the future the sector will require more customer handling, team working and communication skills to produce higher quality products and services and to increase efficiency.
