Logistics has a huge part to play in Britain’s agriculture. More importantly than ever since the outcome of the referendum and most recent election. Everyone involved in transport is curious what the nation’s next steps will be in establishing a trade deal – with whom and the ways in which the country will benefit.
Whoever decides the outcome of trade that hauliers and the logistics industry can carry out through arrangements, will also decide the fate for the 7 million employees who work to produce, sell and transport goods. There are major implications, with many businesses still curious as to how the UK can continue to protect its financial growth through the 21st
Debating the future of logistics as we know it is part of the job for the FTA and during the 2020 Future Logistics conference, their voice speaking on behalf of hauliers must be heard more so than ever. The future has opportunities for UK/international hauliers alike, but it’s down to officials to secure a deal that will be beneficial to logistics and haulage as part of logistics.
Headlining speaker, astronaut Tim Peake, will lead the conference – covering 4 areas and issues that have yet to be explored. These are: the Future of Business Strategies, Future Communities, Future Data and Future Vehicles.
Elizabeth de Jong, UK Policy Director of the FTA, spoke on the matter: “While the need to deliver for customers will never diminish, the UK’s logistics industry is changing faster than many of us appreciate. With so many exterior factors changing the world around us, the conference will provide a comprehensive opportunity for those involved in or with the sector to discover and debate the influences which will shape the logistics world of tomorrow. With a packed programme of expert speakers, Future Logistics 2020 promises to be an unmissable event.”
With Tim Peake, a speaker line-up has been made for the event including some of the major figures in the logistics industry. With speakers from a wide range of firms and organisations like: Oxford Robotics, Centrica, KPMG, UPS & TfL. Members of the industry going to the event can expect to be challenged and ask significant questions about the future of the haulage industry.
“Logistics and transport are at the heart of everything we all do, both at work and at play, and it is vital that our industry thrives if UK PLC is to succeed. I am confident that conversations taking place at Future Logistics 2020 will help to set the agenda for the future of our sector and ensure that the UK’s logistics industry is ready for any challenges which the 21st century and beyond will pose.” de Jong concluded.
The event will be hosted at the same time as the first ITT Hub event, taking place at Farnborough International Conference Centre on 13th
of May next year. Along with an exhibit, all the latest developments on UK logistics will be discussed and explored by important members of the logistics industry. There will also be an external vehicle display area to show some of the newest vehicles on the market. For more info on the event visit: http://fta.co.uk/events/itt
