UKTiE is a unique association representing twelve of Britain’s leading transport companies and organisations, across all the modes. It was launched to facilitate constructive engagement between United Kingdom (UK) transport representatives, the UK Government and the EU institutions. We seek to promote the best in UK transport, share best practice with our European partners and support the work of the EU institutions in completing the Single European Transport Area.
The UK transport sector is highly competitive and world class in terms of technology and environmental operating solutions. UKTiE’s aims to support its members in ensure that UK transport remains competitive within Europe and that prosperity and growth are maximised through minimum disruption to flows in goods and people between the EU and UK.
“UKTiE is essential in bringing together all the UK’s transportation modes to promote an impactful voice in the counsels of the EU on transport issues. At a time of Brexit uncertainty, it is more important than ever for UK transport to form new alliances and engage politicians and stakeholders in Brussels and Strasbourg, to both seek to influence and to understand developing policy in the EU.”
Darren Caplan, Chief Executive, the UK Railway Industry Association
“We have worked with UKTIE for over 5 years. This is a testament to the high quality service the team provides from high level political intelligence to developing detailed engagement programme. Their work on understanding the current political risks and their experience of European institutions have been key developing a successful influencing strategy. It has also been a useful way to meet and engage with other UKTiE members, which has helped us to identify areas of common interest, and focus our combined energies on issues.”
