Transport Manager back this autumn and better than ever for 2024


Did you know that transport managers need to keep up to date with more than 70 pieces of individual legislation to remain compliant?

Regular updates and small changes to these rules can also mean that being fully up to speed with all necessary legislation can be a tough challenge. Which is where Logistics UK’s well respected Transport Manager conferences can help.

Launched this week, the 24th year of the conference series will see 10 live events held around the country this autumn, as well as a virtual version, packed with information to ensure that transport managers can remain compliant and operating safely.

The packed one-day programme will include a host of expert speakers, as well as providing attendees with the opportunity to hear directly from the Traffic Commissioners about the issues they handle every day. In addition, there is the chance to ask questions and receive information and guidance on industry legislation and other issues affecting compliance.

The conferences attracted a record number of over 1,800 delegates last year and with bookings already coming in, indications are that this year’s series of events is set to be just as popular.

Supported by BP, r2c , Weightmans, WTW, Logistics UK Recovery and a plethora of regional exhibitors, the conferences will include sessions on autonomous vehicles, the revision of the Transport Manager CPC syllabus and driver focus among many other topics.

There will be opportunities for networking throughout the day as well as the chance to discuss specific queries with experts from Logistics UK’s Member Advice Centre.

Places cost £345 + VAT for the first registrant (£445 + VAT for non members) and then £325 + VAT (£425 + VAT for non members) for subsequent bookings.

CIPD’s report on the Apprenticeship Levy echoes Logistics UK’s asks of government

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development this week published a report stating that the number of new apprenticeships has fallen by up to two fifths since the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in 2017. In response, Jonathan Walker, Head of Infrastructure at Logistics UK commented:

“This research reflects what we at Logistics UK have been saying for some time, that the current skills system is not fit for purpose and does not meet the needs of our sector.

“As well as investing for the long term through apprenticeships, employers need the flexibility to be able to provide real time, appropriate training which may not necessarily fit the apprenticeship model –we are urging the next government to reconsider the way the system is structured to meet the needs of both employers and employees more effectively.”

The CIPD research shows that there has been a 41% decline in the number of apprenticeship starts for those under the age of 19 since the scheme came into force. A full copy of the report can be read here.
