Traffic Commissioners to headline Logistics UK’s Transport Manager 2021

Traffic Commissioners will be updating industry with their latest guidance as industry regulators when they headline Logistics UK’s Transport Manager series for 2021.

A Traffic Commissioner will be present at each of the event locations, with the exception of Belfast, where David Mullan, the Head of the Northern Ireland Transport Regulation Unit, will deliver the keynote speech. The Traffic Commissioners will share invaluable information for transport managers who, despite the disruption and challenges faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, remain legally required to keep their professional knowledge up to date and ensure their operations remain compliant.


Richard Turfitt, Senior Traffic Commissioner, comments: “The logistics industry has been vital to GB during the pandemic and its ability to operate safely and effectively will be just as important to the national recovery. To meet the challenges in a changing industry, it is crucial that transport managers are equipped with the latest information on how to maintain compliance standards and to deliver effective and continuous management of their transport operations. The involvement of the Traffic Commissioners at Logistics UK’s Transport Manager shows the importance the regulators place on professional development and that they value the opportunity to engage with the transport managers, who perform such an important role.”


James Firth, Head of Road Freight Regulation Policy at Logistics UK, said: “We are thrilled to have the involvement of the Traffic Commissioners at Logistics UK’s Transport Manager series once again. We are grateful to Richard and his team for their continued support for the conference series. Their participation is hugely valuable for our attendees and their involvement in the series will give delegates a great opportunity to ask pressing questions on matters which could affect their fleets’ future compliance and ensure that their operations remain road-ready for the coming year.”


Transport Manager, sponsored by Bridgestone Tyres, will be touring across the UK from September to December 2021. Topics to be covered by the event’s knowledgeable speakers will include logistics in urban centres, low emission vehicles, working safely with alternative fuels, a compliance update and much more. The series is also sponsored by Brigade Electronics.

The price for Logistics UK members is £295 plus VAT for the first delegate and £265 plus VAT for subsequent delegates; for non-Logistics UK members the cost is £395 plus VAT for the first delegate and £365 plus VAT for subsequent delegates. This price includes access to all the exclusive conference sessions and a full package of refreshments throughout the day. For more information, or to book your place, please visit the link below.
