Feeding the City: a Cold Chain Federation conversation

Reading, UK: Last mile fulfilment, already the driver of a fundamental realignment of the way people shop, has been turbo-charged by the covid lockdown, the Cold Chain Federation says.

“This trend butts up against a rising policy drive to address pollution in cities, to restrict and reshape urban logistics. The cold chain is at the forefront of both these trends.”

The Cold Chain Federation is running a session, Feeding the City: a Cold Chain Federation conversation, between 10 and 11am on 15 September to talk about how businesses can manage these risks and harness these opportunities.

The event includes:
Is electrification of vehicles the answer, what about other fuels?
Is our supply chain changing fast enough to meet policy objectives?
Where is the right balance between regulation and incentives and can industry and governments work together?

On the panel are:
Helen Langford, head of sustainable logistics, Ceva Logistics
Craig Hogg, director of fleet, Bidfood
Hugh Frost, managing director, Hubl Logistics
Tom Southall, policy director, Cold Chain Federation
Chaired by: Shane Brennan, chief executive, Cold Chain Federation
