With a week to go until Logistics UK’s Next Generation Van conference, the business group is urging anyone who wishes to attend to book now, to avoid disappointment. Taking place in Coventry on 11 July 2023, the conference will provide operators with the latest information and insights needed to meet upcoming challenges across the sector. 


Delegates will hear from Shadow Minister (Business and Industrial Strategy), Bill Esterson MP in a session that examines progress on decarbonising commercial vehicles, in addition to a range of industry experts who will provide updates on manufacturer supply and demand, as well as a HS2 project update in relation to anticipated disruptions, improvements and changes to the road network, and key trends across the sector. Further decarbonisation related sessions will include a discussion on the findings from this year’s EV Rally and whether UK Roads are ready for electric vehicle operations, a practical case study exploring fleet transition, and a focus on EV charging and using home charging for company vans.
