Logistics UK’s popular Transport Manager conference comes to Northern Ireland in October
With its own dedicated programme offering specific support and advice for the logistics industry in Northern Ireland, Logistics UK’s popular Transport Manager conference is returning to the Culloden Estate & Spa, Belfast on 5 October 2023 for a full day of exclusive talks, topical information and peer-to-peer networking opportunities.
Any business using HGVs or vans in its daily work needs to make sure its transport managers are up to speed with the latest rules and regulations governing their use and attending one of our Transport Manager conferences is the ideal way to get up to speed.
Sponsored by Brigade Electronics, Northern Ireland Transport Manager 2023 will give delegates the chance to hear from senior industry figures and policy makers, including representatives from the Transport Regulation Unit (TRU), the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) and the Road Safety Authority (RSA).
“With its own programme tailored specifically for the logistics industry in Northern Ireland, this event is not to be missed by anyone operating commercial vehicles of all sizes,” said Nichola Mallon, Logistics UK’s Head of Trade and Devolved Policy.
“Attendance enables those in charge of vehicle fleets to prepare for, and get to grips with, the various changes that could affect their business. Places are already filling up fast, so anyone interested in attending should register as soon as possible to secure their place.”
The extensive programme also includes in-depth presentations from expert speakers on a variety of issues including the General Safety Regulation, load security, alternative fuels, sustainability and much more. The event is also supported by BP, Weightmans and WTW and it should be noted that attendance also counts towards continuous professional development (CPD) requirements.
The price to attend for Logistics UK members is £335 plus VAT for the first delegate and £315 plus VAT for subsequent delegates; for non-Logistics UK members the cost is £435 plus VAT for the first delegate and £415 plus VAT for subsequent delegates.
This price includes access to all the exclusive conference sessions, a full package of refreshments throughout the day and a take-home bag packed with useful information.

Revolutionary community system can mean new era for UK port technology
Digital trade solutions business CNS (Community Network Services), is rolling out its new CNS Port Community System (PCS), to future-proof port technology in the UK and beyond.
The upgrade will see ‘Compass’ – which has supported many of the UK’s largest maritime ports since 2010 – transition to the cloud-based and HMRC-compliant CNS PCS. This modern, API-ready platform is based on DP World’s global CARGOES platform, runs on multiple devices and will enable businesses to respond to regulatory changes with greater ease and agility.
In over thirteen years of operation, ‘Compass’ has orchestrated trade logistics for UK maritime ports, facilitating communication, cargo visibility and trade efficiency for shipping lines, freight forwarders, terminal operators, customs brokers and more.
The transition from ‘Compass’ to CNS PCS marks the next stage in the evolution of UK maritime trade.
The system’s phased rollout has commenced with a pilot launch in the Belfast community during August 2023, before being implemented across other CNS sites in the UK. The transition for all ‘Compass’ users in the UK is expected to be complete in 2025, including deployments across London Gateway and the Port of Southampton.
