WHO WE ARE

The First UK Membership Organisation to Represent Specialist Training Providers

Logistics Skills Network is a new nationwide association, launched in September 2020, to represent and promote the collective interests of specialist training providers to government, regulators, the wider logistics and passenger transport sectors, and to those working in the sectors.  We have a strong working relationship with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Department for Transport (DfT) who have committed to working with us and helping us achieve our aims.

It is important that training providers have professional representation, at a national level, to ensure coordinated engagement. It is beneficial for DVSA to engage with national representative organisations and for individual providers to ensure their voices are heard and understood. DVSA is eager to work with Logistics Skills Network as a membership stakeholder group representing the interests of the training providers' sector, and will collaborate on an embargoed basis seeking opinion and sharing information about service development plans.
