This database has been made up from the information provided by industry, in response to our call for cross sector collaboration to ensure that the UK is equipped to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

Important notice: **Please be reminded that this database is not to be used as a sales tool. The database is currently available for everyone to access, in order to help the UK against the coronavirus crisis. The database should only be accessed if you have an urgent request for resource to support essential services that you are struggling to fill. Misuse of this database will undermine the purpose of the scheme and the goodwill and willingness of our profession. We are reliant on your understanding to ensure this initiative continues to support those who need our services the most. **

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is calling for cross sector collaboration to ensure that as a profession we are equipped to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

We have seen a rapid pivot in operational needs, with demands on the logistics sector soaring as home delivery and pharmaceutical supply chains are put under pressure.

Conversely, as home working grows, so demand for public transport has fallen. We believe as a profession we can work together to meet this challenge. 

CILT is providing a service to match organisations together so that those who have capacity can help those in need, by making available staff, vehicles and expertise to support the supply chain.

If you are an organisation seeking support, please access our database of available resources

If you have capacity and would like to help those in need please complete our online form. The information provided will be uploaded into our public non-editable resource database, for others to view and to directly reach out to their required resource for support.

In support of the CILT Coronavirus Resource Database, Transport Minister Baroness Vere said: “Our response to the coronavirus outbreak is dependent on keeping the UK’s supply chain moving – so that our supermarkets can stay stocked up, and the NHS can access vital medicines.

“It’s incredible to see people working together to ensure drivers, vans and warehouse space are available to the organisations who need them. This sort of collaboration demonstrates the best of Britain.”

We are asking you to contact us if:

  • You are an organisation (be it in the logistics, supply chain or passenger transport sectors) with resource availability including, drivers, vehicles or warehousing 
  • You are a vehicle rental company with available vehicles
  • You are a retired member of CILT – who is not classified as “high risk” – and able to offer your services and expertise to logistics operations at this time

If you have any questions, would like your entry on the database to be amended or removed, have an urgent need, or have significant resources on offer please contact us via

Please note, we have witnessed an incredible amount of offers of resources to support the supply chain and are working our way through these to establish a succinct database for you to access.
