CILT UK members "in favour of staying in EU"

Date: 12/05/2016

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport surveyed members regarding the EU Referendum. 65% of respondents believe that the logistics and transport industry will have a stronger future if the UK remains in the EU, although respondents were only around 4% of membership

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) has published the results of a recent membership survey concerning the EU Referendum. The survey reveals that 65% of respondents believe that the logistics, supply chain and transport industry will have a stronger future if the UK remains in the EU. Responses also reveal that 64% of individuals believe that the UK should remain in the EU, while 36% are in the "leave" camp.

CILT's members were also asked if their business will be a in a stronger position for the future if the UK remains in the EU, to which 58% of respondents replied ‘yes.’ 12% said 'no' and 30% said it would make 'no difference.' Kevin Richardson FCILT, Chief Executive, CILT, said: "The message from our members reveals that, both as individuals and from a business perspective, a 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 do have split views on this issue. However, part of our role as a professional body is to inform and the conclusion from this member survey suggests that those involved in our industry believe we will be stronger by staying in the EU."

CILT represents over 18,000 professionals working in the logistics and transport industry and the member survey received 676 responses, which is 3.7%. The huge preponderance of non-responses (almost 96% of membership) to such an important question may suggest indifference to the outcome of the popular referendum on 23rd June. Statisitically this percentage of response for a population of CILT's size indicates a +/- 5% error rate, so the respondents' "two to one" result in favour of remaining overtops that.
