Future Logistics Conference offers a glimpse of tomorrow’s transport today


The logistics sector is currently facing a profound set of challenges – Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, an acute driver shortage, and now a spike in fuel prices.

However, sometimes dealing with current issues blinds us to the need to take a longer, more strategic view

The Future Logistics Conference aims to help delegates look ahead to the key trends and emerging technology that look set to shape and revolutionise the industry in the coming years and decades. Organised by Logistics UK, it is a free-to-attend two-day conference to be held as part of ITT Hub, on 11 and 12 May 2022 at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

HEADLINED BY TOP SPACE SCIENTIST

The Future Logistics Conference will bring together a stellar line up of thought leaders, innovators and experts in the transport sector, offering both high-quality information and insight into what logistics professionals need to do to plan and futureproof their business.

This year’s keynote speaker is the world-renowned space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE (pictured), science communicator and presenter of the BBC’s The Sky at Night.

BLENDING PRESENTATIONS AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS

Offering an overview of developments in technology and society that will impact on the activity of logistics businesses in the next five to ten years, the conference will use a blend of presentations and panel discussions, offering the opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session.

The structure of the conference allows delegates to plan their own itineraries and cherry pick sessions aligned to their business and professional interests.

EMBRACING TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

The conference will tackle the major topics currently facing logistics professionals – the rival merits of alternative fuels, the future of autonomous deliveries and how van operators can manage the transition to electric fleets.

Kevin Green, Director of Marketing & Communications, Logistics UK, said: “Following last year’s successful inaugural ITT Hub event, this year’s Future Logistics Conference will take a far-reaching view of the forces shaping the industry, and explore some of the profound challenges coming down the track. The race to decarbonise, the rise of autonomous vehicles and futureproofing the supply chain are just three of the topics our speakers and panellists will be tackling. I urge all transport professionals with an interest in the trends that are accelerating change in our sector to book their place on this free-to-attend ITT Hub event without delay.”
