Discusses the findings of an industry working group that examined time sensitive distribution, otherwise known as just‐in‐time distribution (JIT). JIT was examined as part of the Freight Transport Association’s response to the transport debate. Reports evidence that JIT does not cause extra lorry traffic, but actually reduces the number of lorry movements. Examines the reasons for this trend, such as improvements in technology and vehicle utilization. Provides examples from industry to illustrate developments, benefits to the environment and customer service. Suggests that further efficiencies are possible still.
