Kate Jennings, Logistics UK’s Director of Policy, said: “Transport Manager provides the ideal opportunity for those in charge of vehicle fleets to brush up on the latest legislation and compliance issues. Bookings for this year’s conferences are already higher than at the same time in previous years and with only a short time until the series kicks off in Yeovil, anyone wishing to attend is advised to book their place as soon as possible.”
