Helping van operators deliver tomorrow

Vans play a crucial role in the UK economy, not only in delivering goods to the nation, but also as vital tools to keep our services and utilities running.

It is essential that whether you operate a single vehicle or a fleet of vans you must remain compliant. Logistics UK’s popular van conferences ensure operators remain up to date with all the latest knowledge relating to your vehicles, their roadworthiness and operation.  


Vans are set to remain a key focus for Logistics UK throughout 2022 as the business group prepares to host another year of events that celebrate the sector and provide the information van operators need moving forward. Logistics UK plans to hold two Vans Today conferences – in separate locations – in April to offer solutions to key operational challenges of van fleets, such as site electrification and fleet maintenance. And, following its successful launch in 2021, Next Generation Van is due to return to Coventry, this time in July, to present an actionable future-focused agenda based on real life case studies. To celebrate drivers in the sector, Logistics UK plans to hold its ever-popular Van Driver of the Year competition in May at the ITT Hub at Farnborough Airfield, with the Van Awards ceremony set to take place towards the end of September. Entries are expected to open from April.  


As well as sessions from policy experts and key industry figures, Logistics UK’s van events are sponsored and regularly attended by the business organisation’s industry expert Van Gold Partners - the AA, Bott Ltd, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL – whose representatives are on hand to provide information and answer questions from delegates.
