Logistics UK's Van Operational Briefing goes virtual for 2020

Monday 21 September 2020

Logistics UK’s Van Operational Briefing returns for 2020, providing operators with the essential information they need to run their fleets safety, efficiently and legally, in a slightly different format. This year, the briefing will take place as a virtual event to be held on 6 November 2020, using state-of-art online conference, exhibition and networking technology to create an engaging, immersive experience that delegates can enjoy from home or work.

Topics to be covered include van security, enforcement and trailer safety, fleet electrification, and recent developments on urban restrictions, such as the latest information on air quality schemes. Logistics UK’s Member Advice Centre (MAC) team will also be discussing how drivers’ hours and tachographs affect van operations both now, and in the future.

Natalie Chapman, Head of Urban Policy at Logistics UK, comments: “There are more than four million vans on Britain’s roads, and no matter the size of a fleet, safety, efficiency and compliance is of vital importance to any operator. With a detailed programme covering everything from vehicle security to the clean air agenda, Logistics UK’s 2020 Van Operational Briefing will provide delegates with the most up-to-date information on key topical issues as well as presenting multiple networking opportunities. And, by employing state-of-the-art virtual conference technology, delegates can enjoy the experience from the comfort of home or work.”

The Van Operational Briefing will also offer delegates the opportunity to engage with leading logistics industry suppliers online in the Exhibition Hall. Visitors will be able to download brochures, thought leadership content and whitepapers showcasing the latest technical innovations; they are also free to ask exhibitors questions via live text or video chat. 

Sponsored by AA, Bott Ltd, Brigade Electronics, Hertz UK, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL, this is a not-to-be-missed event.
