Driving change – logistics conference offers a glimpse of the industry’s future

With just three weeks to go until Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference, more and more industry professionals are registering to attend the free event.

The two-day conference, to be held alongside ITT Hub at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre on 11 and 12 May 2022, will host a broad range of expert speakers drawn from the commercial transport, passenger transport, automotive, technology, finance and energy sectors. The conference will be headlined by space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE (pictured above left) on the first day and Transport Minister Trudy Harrison MP (pictured above right) on the second.  


To open the conference, Dr Aderin-Pocock MBE will explore how cutting-edge developments in space exploration and physics could shape transport’s route to net zero. Following on from British astronaut Major Tim Peake’s keynote speech at last year’s inaugural ITT Hub event, Aderin-Pocock, the President-elect of the British Science Association and presenter of the BBC’s long-running The Sky at Night programme, will take principles and learnings from the worlds of space science and physics and apply them to terrestrial logistics. “Logistics plays such a vital role in all our lives, both here on Earth and out there in space," she said, "making it more sustainable across the board is critical for all our futures.”


Other sessions will look at the future for autonomous deliveries, making the switch to electric vans, and future-proofing the supply chain. They will also explore what lessons need to be learnt in the post-COVID and post-Brexit world to make industry processes, technology and finances more resilient. There will also be a detailed panel discussion where experts will consider the options for investment in low carbon fuels for HGVs. The panel of speakers will discuss what vehicles and transport operations gas power is most appropriate for, the total cost of ownership, how to fund investment and how mature the refuelling infrastructure is, as well as exploring the difference between hydrogen and biomethane, including range considerations and the speed of refuelling.  


Now in its second year, the ITT Hub event will feature indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces, as well as Ride and Drive test routes and a new area focusing on the chilled and refrigerated sector, the Cold Chain Hub, presented by Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution. Attended by thousands of industry professionals, its launch in 2021 was the largest show of its type in 40 years. This year, the show looks to continue its success, providing an exclusive look at how each corner of the commercial and passenger road transport markets can adapt to the ever-changing challenges of achieving net zero to achieve a greener future.
