With just three remaining live events – in London on 14 Nov, Cardiff on 23 Nov and Birmingham on 30 Nov – and one virtual event on 10 Nov – it is strongly advised that anyone wishing to attend Logistics UK’s Transport Manager 2023 conference series signs up now to ensure their place and keep their compliance knowledge up to date.
Over 1,700 delegates have already attended or booked to attend this year’s series of conferences, which is sponsored by Brigade Electronics, and places are selling fast.
“We’re delighted that so many people see the benefit of coming to our Transport Manager conferences,” said Kate Jennings, Logistics UK’s Director of Policy, “to make sure they’re up to date with the latest legislation changes and compliance information – something that’s vital for anyone who’s responsible for a vehicle fleet or operates vehicles as part of their job.
“Although places are in high demand this year, there’s still space available at some of the remaining venues, but I’d advise anyone wishing to come along to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
Logistics UK has secured the involvement of the Traffic Commissioners for the whole series of events, both virtual and live, which also includes the Transport Manager calendar, a compliance update, and sessions on vehicle in-service standards, managing safety technology, driving down the cost of your fleet insurance, technology and the balance of risk, and preparing your fleet for electrification. There is also an interview with DVSA’s CEO Loveday Ryder.
The Metropolitan Police Commercial Vehicle Unit will speak about the multi award-winning Transport Professionals Talk, providing an overview of the policing response to incidents involving commercial vehicles. New to the programme this year, this session is proving highly popular with delegates.

New timber service to Port of Dover’s cargo terminal boasts huge carbon savings and supports renewable energy in Kent
Euroforest, the UK's largest independent provider of timber harvesting, recently began a monthly vessel call into the Port of Dover, boasting huge carbon savings and securing rapid transit to the primary customer.
The soft chip wood, largely comprised of natural wind blow, will now be transported from Aberdeen via coaster vessel to the Port of Dover, each 2,500-tonne shipment taking 93 HGVs off the roads and saving 57,000 road miles, offering vast carbon savings.
The timber carried by the monthly service is bound for Kent Renewable Energy’s biomass park, a combined heat and power plant that opened in 2018. The site generates over 27MW of green energy every year – enough to supply 50,000 homes and save over 100,000 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to one million flight tickets to Paris.
“The Port of Dover is thrilled to welcome timber into the port, adding to our already diverse range of cargo handled,” said Alison Hall, Head of Business Development Strategy and Corporate Planning at the Port of Dover.
“This vessel call by Euroforest is a prime example of how our strategic location can reduce the length of journeys and the time of onward distribution of products, considerably reducing CO2 emissions compared to other routes; in this case removing 93 HGVs from UK roads every month, easing congestion and resulting in huge carbon savings.”
