Logistics UK's Fleet Engineer - one month to go!

Tuesday 17 August 2021

With less than one month until Logistics UK’s Fleet Engineer – the essential one-day conference for anyone responsible for maintaining commercial vehicles – the business group is urging fleet engineers to book their places now to ensure they are up to date with the latest developments in technology and enforcement.

Taking place at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire on 7 September 2021, keynote speaker Kevin Rooney, the Traffic Commissioner for the West of England, will be explaining to attendees the consequences of failing to keep pace with vehicle technology, in addition to sharing some of the new practices that operators need to have put in place to improve their maintenance regimes.

The Enforcement Policy and Technical Standards Managers at the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will be providing an essential overview of the Agency’s approach to vehicle maintenance. They will be joined by leading names across the sector – including senior representatives from IVECO, Warburton, Volvo, Renault, BPW Limited, TIP Trailer Services, Royal Mail, TEXA UK Ltd, and Siemens Mobility – who will be sharing good practice advice and discussing alternative fuel options, new technologies, and anticipated vehicle design changes.

Phil Lloyd, Head of Engineering Policy at Logistics UK, comments: “Keeping pace with technological developments and enforcement policies is of vital importance to engineers; Logistics UK Fleet Engineer is an unmissable event for anyone with responsibility for specifying commercial vehicles, ensuring roadworthiness and compliance, and maintaining fleets. With less than one month to go, we are urging all fleet engineers to book now to avoid missing out.”
