Dine with the logistics industry’s finest and celebrate another successful year for the sector by attending FTA’s Northern Ireland Logistics Lunch, to be held at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast on 10 May 2019.
Guest speaker John Hartson, the renowned ex-professional footballer and respected BBC and BT Sport pundit, will be sharing an inspirational account of his struggles and victories on and off the pitch, from becoming one of Wales’ most prolific goal scorers to overcoming an aggressive form of testicular cancer.
Sponsored by Denn-Part, the event is an opportunity to recognise industry achievements, network with peers, enjoy a delicious three course lunch, and informally debate the key issues and opportunities facing the logistics sector.
Seamus Leheny, Policy Manager for Northern Ireland at FTA, the only business group representing all of the logistics industry, commented: “FTA’s Northern Ireland Logistics Lunch is back for its third year and it is bigger than ever; I am thrilled John Hartson – a sporting legend and hero to many on and off the pitch – is joining us to share highlights from his inspirational, exhilarating life. While there is no doubt the logistics sector is facing challenging and uncertain times, I am looking forward to getting together with some of the industry’s finest and taking the time to celebrate our successes, both past and present.”

With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc. A champion and challenger, FTA speaks to Government with one voice on behalf of the whole sector, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
