ABSTRACT
In this article, what professionals in the transportation and logistics sectors in Great Britain would want the government, under the leadership of prime minister Tony Blair, to do for the industries beyond 2001 were discussed. The ten year Transport Plan of the government faces stiff competition for investment in the context of spending on national infrastructure as a whole, while tough circumstances in the manufacturing sector are accelerating the impact of globalization on supply chains. The author of this article believes that the nation's dependence upon a robust transport and logistic system remains ill understood both by the government, and by the nation at large. Better understanding of the issues ought to lead to more regular investment in people as well as systems and infrastructure, rather than crisis management and the pursuit of the exciting unrelated initiatives.
