Self-driving and electric vehicles, drone technology, Wi-Fi connectivity, artificial intelligence and more: the world around us is changing fast, and the logistics sector is one area embracing new technologies and solutions quickly.
The Freight Transport Association, which has more than 17,000 members nationwide, will be holding a new one-day event, The Future Logistics Conference & Expo 2018.
It wants to arm companies with the knowledge they need to embrace the future of freight and provide a platform for discussion and debate.
To be held at the Warwickshire Event Centre on 14 November 2018, the one-day conference and expo will bring together the brightest minds in the logistics sector to debate the factors that will shape the industry in the coming years and provide a showcase of the very latest emerging technologies in the freight industry.
Featuring 27 speakers – including experts from the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and the Transport Research Laboratory – the conference will explore three main themes: managing people in a connected world; developing strategies to optimise operations; and tools, technologies and the future of transport.
