Logistics UK members to enjoy VIP access to Future Logistics Conference next week


Logistics UK is offering its members free VIP access to next week’s eagerly awaited two-day Future Logistics Conference, an integral part of the ITT Hub event, which runs from 11-12 May 2022 at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

This VIP access guarantees members a ticket to any of the conference’s nine sessions, including the two keynote speeches.

With an impressive line-up of speakers drawn from the commercial transport, passenger transport, automotive, energy, finance, engineering and technology sectors, this year’s conference promises to offer unique insights into the likely direction of travel for the fast-changing transport industry.

Renowned space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE will open the conference, with her keynote speech on ‘The Future of Transport and Logistics’. Drawing on her knowledge of cutting-edge developments in space exploration, Dr Aderin-Pocock will apply her learnings from the worlds of space science and physics to help inform the transport sector’s route to net zero.

Decarbonisation will be the topic of the second day’s keynote speech too. Transport Minister Trudy Harrison MP will share insights on the Department for Transport’s current thinking on decarbonising the UK’s road freight fleet, as well as observations on the future of transport decarbonisation more broadly.

Other sessions will cover the future for gas-powered and battery electric HGVs, the launch of Logistics UK’s Decarbonising Logistics report, future proofing the supply chain and the dawn of driverless deliveries.

Kevin Green, Marketing and Communications Director, Logistics UK, said: “I am hugely excited about this year’s Future Logistics Conference programme, featuring as it does both a space scientist and a government minister, as well as a host of other renowned speakers from industry and academia, all experts in their respective fields.

“Given the profound challenges of Brexit, spiralling inflation, the COVID-19 pandemic, skills shortages, supply chain disruption and above all the race to decarbonise, the transport industry stands at a pivotal juncture in its evolution. I urge all Logistics UK members with an interest in what lies over the horizon for the industry to take advantage of their VIP access and book their ticket to next week’s conference without delay. I very much look forward to hearing your contribution to the thinking and debate at what promises to be a highly engaging event.”
