Straightforward Guide to 5G | Transport & Logistics

Be it by rail, road, sea, inland waterways, pipe or air, the transport and logistics sector is the linchpin that keeps the UK moving. In fact, as an island nation, the movement of goods—or logistics—is critical to our very existence.



The movement of people—or transport— racked up 873 billion passenger kilometres in 2019, according to the Department of Transport.

But the transit of people and goods in a post-Covid, post-Brexit world is more complex than ever before, with evolving consumer demands and behaviours, rising costs and shrinking margins.

To succeed and thrive, organisations need to become more resilient, agile and productive. 5G—and the digital technologies it powers—can be the key to unlocking a more efficient, sustainable future for transport and logistics.

This guide has been designed to demystify 5G, helping organisations understand exactly what 5G is, what it does and why it’s important.

We’ve tried to keep it as jargon-free as possible but if you find yourself confused, we’ve included a handy glossary.
