The intention is to keep each presentation very short and then have a discussion at the end. The session is designed for two purposes, firstly to act as an introduction to several people and hence prompt networking and secondly to hear how some companies are dealing with various aspects of decarbonisation and the need to be more environmentally friendly in how we do business. 
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.

Driver and fleet safety:
How well is the logistics industry dealing with the aftershocks of the pandemic!
The logistics industry has had to deal with numerous massive challenges over the last two years to keep the country running but the aftershocks continue to be felt within the industry.

From the driver shortage to a shortage of skilled engineers to maintain and keep vehicles running, to the increase in the cost of fuel and drivers’ wages, to name just a few. If that wasn’t enough, there have been numerous regulation changes such as the new Guidance to Roadworthiness and new Categorisation of Defects.

What will hit the industry next? 
These have all been major issues for all fleet operators, regardless of the size of their fleet but at what cost operational and driver safety? 

Only a limited number of operators will have successfully upskilled and implemented behavioural and culture change across their operation to tackle these challenges. Beit from driver training, driver welfare, repair and maintenance training to Transport Manager training, to ensure they have remained compliant and legal, thereby reducing their exposure to risk and protecting their brand.

Come along and join in the conversation with our panel of expert industry speakers, who will share their top tips and takeaways for successfully dealing with the continuing aftershocks of the pandemic.
