Logistics UK’s Welsh logistics lunch a sell-out success


After facing a particularly challenging year, Welsh logistics businesses took time out last week to celebrate the sector’s achievements over the past 12 months, with more than 200 of the industry’s leading names gathering at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel on 26 November 2021 for the sell-out Logistics UK annual Welsh Lunch.

Sponsored by Watts Truck and Van, attendees enjoyed live entertainment from internationally renowned comedian Keith Farnan – a familiar face on BBC's 'Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow' – with addresses from Ian Jarman, Chair of Logistics UK’s Welsh Freight Council and ATF Manager at Owens Group, and David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK. During the lunch, attendees took the time to reconnect with industry peers and debate informally the key issues and opportunities facing the sector with logistics experts from across the country.

The event helped to raise vital funds for the Velindre Cancer Trust, through a charity raffle with prizes donated kindly by Faun Zoeller UK, Owens Group, and Euro Commercials Ltd, in addition to Logistics UK and the charity itself.

David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, comments: “Now in its 37th year, Logistics UK’s Welsh Lunch has established itself as the industry’s unmissable social event; I am so pleased this year’s event was another sell-out success with top calibre entertainment and an incredible response from attendees. While the impact of COVID-19 and Brexit made 2021 a challenging year for the economy, logistics businesses have risen to each test with determination and resolve; I am proud to have had the opportunity to recognise the industry’s achievements in person and I look forward to another successful year for Welsh logistics.”
