National Expenditure on Logistics in the UK

In 1980 Angela Childerley, for the first time, estimated total UK expenditure on logistics using 1976 data.  I updated and slightly modified this calculation using 1986 data.  This article reports the results of this analysis.  It suggests that total UK spend on logistics remained roughly the same, at 22% of GDP, though the composition of this expenditure changed radically. This was mainly because the rate of inflation in the UK economy dropped sharply over the intervening period (from 16.5% in 1976 to 3.4% in 1986) and this greatly reduced annual appreciation in the value of inventory. This wider economic trend masked significant improvements in freight transport productivity and inventory management over the ten year period.
