Transport Manager calendar - setting the scene

An essential legislative round up and technical update highlighting the main topics on the horizon that you need to be aware of in order to ensure the safety, compliance and efficiency of your organisation.


A view from the Traffic Commissioner

An opportunity for delegates to hear from our keynote speaker, the Traffic Commissioner. Understand their priorities for the year ahead and ensure you avoid non-compliance. Commissioners will also detail the latest action taken on operators at Public Inquiries.


Compliance update

In this session Logistics UK will outline changes that have taken place over the last 12 months, and others that are yet to come, that transport managers need to be aware of in order to remain compliant. Additionally, we will be highlighting some of the challenges TMs may experience in their transition to net zero and how we are taking forward the Commercial Vehicle Workshop Rating Scheme (CVWRS) that was discussed at Transport Manager 2023.

10 jobs in 1: The legal responsibilities of a Transport Manager in 2024 

In an age of staff shortages, an evolving workforce demographic, ever increasing regulation and rapid technological change, it is more important than ever for transport managers to understand their wider legal responsibilities not just as compliance officers, but as managers in the 2024 workforce. In this thought-provoking talk, Chris Powell, Partner in the Weightmans' transport law team will re-examine the wider role and legal responsibilities of TMs through the prisms of employment law duties.


Revision of the Transport Manager syllabus 

With the content of the Transport Manager CPC syllabus dating from 2009, when the regulations were last amended, is it now time for this fundamental qualification to have a refresh? This session will give Transport Managers the opportunity to offer their views on how the content could be changed in the future. 


Compliance sprint: Section 88 




Welcome back and prize draws 


Transport Managers in a connected and autonomous world 

As a Bill to regulate the use of autonomous vehicles makes its way through Parliament, the logistics industry must consider how it will operate in an era of connected and potentially driverless vehicles. In this interactive session, Logistics UK will discuss the latest developments in relation to autonomous vehicles, what they could mean for transport operations and the future of the Transport Manager's role. 


Driver Focus: Finding and keeping the best! 

It goes without saying, that drivers are your most valuable assets and without them you are unable to run your operation. This session will look at the following areas to ensure that you get the best and keep the drivers for your operation: recruitment best practice, driver onboarding and induction; setting and embedding the right cultures and behaviours; ensuring effective ongoing training; effective management of health and wellbeing areas; agency relationship management and continuous monitoring and safety improvement. This will be an interactive and fun session with plenty of takeaways to ponder and implement!
