Almost two-thirds of members of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport believe that the UK should remain in the EU.

A recent survey asked members whether they thought as an individual the UK should remain in or leave the EU, 64% said remain, CILT revealed this week.

CILT represents over 18,000 professionals working in the logistics and transport industry and the survey received 676 responses.

Members were also asked if their business will be in a stronger position for the future if the UK remains in the EU, to which 58% said ‘yes’, 12% said ‘no’ and 30% said ‘no difference’.

CILT chief executive Kevin Richardson 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.”
