High demand for Logistics UK’s remaining Transport Manager conference dates
Thursday 02 November 2023
With just four remaining live events – in Peterborough, London, Wales and Birmingham - and one virtual event left in Logistics UK’s Transport Manager 2023 conference series, anyone wishing to attend is being advised to sign up as soon as possible to ensure their place and keep their compliance knowledge up to date. Over 1,700 delegates have already attended or booked to attend this year’s series of conferences, which is sponsored by Brigade Electronics, and places are selling fast, with the Peterborough event already closed for new bookings.
Logistics UK has secured the involvement of the Traffic Commissioners for the whole series of events, both virtual and live, which also includes the Transport Manager calendar, a compliance update, and sessions on vehicle in-service standards, managing safety technology, driving down the cost of your fleet insurance, technology and the balance of risk, and preparing your fleet for electrification. There is also an interview with DVSA’s CEO Loveday Ryder.
The Metropolitan Police Commercial Vehicle Unit will speak about the multi award winning Transport Professionals Talk, providing an overview of the policing response to incidents involving commercial vehicles. New to the programme this year, this session is proving highly popular with delegates.
Kate Jennings, Logistics UK’s Director of Policy, said: “We’re delighted that so many people see the benefit of coming to our Transport Manager conferences, to make sure they’re up to date with the latest legislation changes and compliance information - something that’s vital for anyone who’s responsible for a vehicle fleet or operates vehicles as part of their job. Although places are in high demand this year, there’s still space available at some of the remaining venues, but I’d advise anyone wishing to come along to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
The Transport Manager 2023 conference series is also sponsored by BP, Weightmans and WTW.
