One of the UK’s biggest business groups, Logistics UK, is launching a brand-new, free-to-attend conference – Next Generation Van – to be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Coventry on 9 November 2021.
Sponsored by Logistics UK’s Van Gold Partners – AA, Bott, Brigade, Hertz, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL – the conference will bring together key industry leaders, innovative thinkers, manufacturers, and operators to discuss the future of vans as the UK transitions to a net zero emission economy.
Denise Beedell, Public Policy Manager at Logistics UK comments: “The UK is hurtling towards its net zero emission future; van operators must be provided with the insight they need to decarbonise their operations effectively and understand the steps they must take to meet the challenges that lie ahead. With net zero by 2050 a non-negotiable deadline for the UK economy, major changes are coming to the van market; this is a must-attend event for all operators.”
Sessions will include advice on effective maintenance of alternatively fuelled fleets, measures operators can put in place now to future proof their operations, and guidance on how to grow and attract talent in a time of critical labour shortages.
