  • The Blackwall Tunnel
  • Business as unusual: what are your options?
  • Are night-time deliveries a solution?
  • Deliveries to the Olympic Park and other venues

The conference is the first to be dedicated to fleet operators and transport managers needing to make deliveries in London during the run-up to, and during, the Games themselves.  Attendance is open to members of FTA at £325 plus VAT for the first delegate and £275 for subsequent delegates, and to non-members at £385 plus VAT for the first delegate and £345 for subsequent delegates. Call the FTA Member Service Centre on 08717 11 22 22 for registration or go to: www.fta.co.uk/events
