Spearheading the future of transport

In just five short weeks, ITT Hub will be returning to Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, following its successful debut last year as the largest show of its kind in a generation.

As the commercial vehicle market revolutionises in the transition to net zero, the free-to-attend ITT Hub event will continue to spearhead the future of transport.

An integral part of the two-day event on 11 and 12 May 2022, will be the Future Logistics Conference, organised by Logistics UK, which will offer a blend of keynote addresses and panel discussions, covering future fuels, investment in fuels, making the switch to electric for van fleets, future proofing the supply chain, the future of autonomous deliveries and the launch of the eagerly awaited Logistics UK Net Zero Report 2022.


An impressive line-up of high-profile speakers drawn from the automotive, energy, finance and academic sectors will be headlined by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE, space scientist and presenter of The Sky at Night, the BBC’s popular long-running astronomy programme. Following an introduction and welcome from David Wells OBE, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, Dr Aderin-Pocock will explain to delegates how cutting-edge developments in space exploration and physics can help shape transport’s route to net zero.


There will be two sessions considering the options for investment in low carbon fuels for HGVs – The Future for Gas, where a senior panel will discuss what gas power is most appropriate for, and HGV – The Future for Battery Electric, where panellists will discuss when electric is the most viable option and upfront costs for local infrastructure investment.


Between the two fuel investment sessions, Logistics UK’s policy team will launch and present their key findings from their new flagship Logistics UK Net Zero Report 2022. An in-depth assessment of industry and government progress on the route to net zero, the report will include an analysis of the key trends and developments affecting logistics.


As the past two years has placed unprecedented stresses and strains onto national and international supply chains, a senior panel assesses how the industry can learn the lessons from COVID-19 and Brexit to make its people, processes, technology and finances more resilient.


Transport Minister Trudy Harrison MP’s keynote speech will kick-off the second day of the conference programme, outlining the government’s ‘future for freight’ strategic plan and its focus across all the transport modes.


With the deadline for the end of the sale of petrol and diesel vans just eight years away, a senior panel will offer their views on when and how is the right time to start to develop and implement your electric van strategy.


Using real world practical examples from his guide to investing in new fuels, automotive industry veteran Tim Campbell looks at the key criteria you need to consider on your journey to net zero, along with potential pitfalls to watch out for.


Following rising speculation on the role of autonomous vehicles in revolutionising last-mile delivery, a senior panel will sift the fact from the fiction to discuss the reality of automation today and offer their views on how and when this transformation will take place.

“With decarbonisation and automation high on the agenda, the logistics sector is currently going through an accelerated phase of change,” said Kevin Green, Marketing and Communications Director, Logistics UK, “This is a unique opportunity to hear from a broad range of thinkers and decision makers, all experts in their fields, and gain useful insights into the industry’s fast-paced direction of travel in the coming years as it transitions to net zero.”
