Glenn Lyons
Professor of Future Mobility


This is the seventh in a series of reports to be produced by the Transport Visions Network. The Network is a novel venture to project the views of young professionals into the debate concerning the future of transport and its role in society. It is comprised of individuals who are aged 35 or under from universities, consultancies and public authorities both in the UK and overseas.

This report offers a range of solutions to problems associated with goods movement. It begins with a consideration of the current and expected future context for the operation of freight and logistics in the UK. It considers present policy approaches to the problems of goods movement before introducing the Network's own ideas and visions which are developed under three different scenarios for the future of society: Going Global; Nation State; and Local Living.
