New for the autumn: virtual Future Logistics Conference

Tunbridge Wells, UK: Logistics UK, formerly the FTA, is launching Future Logistics 2020, a virtual conference free to attend.

The one day event on 13 November covers data, vehicles, fuels, Brexit, and business strategies with opportunities for networking.
 
David Wells, chief executive, Logistics UK, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has not slowed the tide of technology. Self-driving trucks, zero-emission vehicles, smart cities, and drone technology are all evolving fast and logistics professionals must be prepared to adapt to this new landscape.

“And, with the uncertainties of the UK’s future trading relationship with the EU – along with the long-term implications of Covid-19 – this important event will help logistics businesses understand what lies in store for logistics in the coming months and years.”
 
Mark Griffin, chief executive, ITT Hub, said:  “The postponement of ITT Hub in May this year, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, meant we were unable to share the huge flagship industry conference programme we had planned.  However, this new event will give our audience the opportunity to gain insights from leading names across the industry, and should whet appetites for the rescheduled ITT Hub show and full Future Logistics Conference which we have rescheduled for May next year at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference centre. 

“With so much innovation happening every day across transport and logistics, Future Logistics 2020 will showcase some of the developments and thinking which sets our sector apart from the rest.  It’s one not to be missed.”

ITT Hub has been postponed to 12 and 13 May 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
