Head of South of England and Urban Policy,
Freight Transport Association
Natalie is Head of South of England and Urban Policy for the Freight Transport Association. FTA is one of the biggest business groups in the UK, supporting, shaping and standing up for efficient logistics. It is the only organisation in the UK that represents all of logistics, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers whose businesses depend on the efficient movement of goods.
Her work includes developing and shaping transport policy; working closely with the main governmental, political and policy stakeholders in the region; and representing the industry in the media. Natalie played a central coordination and communication role in the management of freight and logistics for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Currently she is focused on the development of the proposed Direct Vision Standard, the roll out of Clean Air Zones and reform of the London Lorry Control Scheme. Natalie is a keen advocate for enabling deliveries to be retimed out of peak hours and chaired TfL’s Retiming Deliveries Consortium. She also works closely with the business community to enhance and underpin FTA’s campaigning and is Deputy Chair of the London Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Transport Committee.
Natalie read Law at the University of the West of England in Bristol and graduated in 2003. She joined FTA later the same year.
