Driving change in the vans market; Logistics UK's event to discuss the opportunities

Thursday 19 November 2020

From developing new technologies, to adapting to a rapidly changing environmental agenda, the vans market is continuously changing. To ensure operators have the very latest information they need for the future, and to debate the issues which may affect future operations, Logistics UK will be holding its virtual Future Van Conference on 27 November 2020.  

Using a cutting edge, immersive conference and networking platform, Future Van 2020 will bring together industry leaders, innovative thinkers, manufacturers and operators to discuss key topics with sessions including Electrifying your Van Fleet, Autonomous Vehicles, Ultra-Light Logistics and EV Power Solutions. Back by popular demand, expert futurologist Fergus McVey of 7th Sense Research UK Ltd will be headlining the unmissable event with a discussion on ‘The World Now’, which will focus on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has impacted future plans and developments.  

Denise Beedell, Vans and Urban Policy Manager at Logistics UK, comments: “The vans market is changing rapidly to meet challenging environmental targets and soaring customer demand for greener deliveries and servicing, with more van operators seeking to electrify their fleets. We are excited to offer this event to provide delegates with the information they need to move forward in this developing market.” 

At the event, sponsored by the AA, Bott Ltd, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL, delegates will have the ability to ask questions to speakers via text or video chat and engage with leading logistics industry suppliers online in the Exhibition Hall.
