With six weeks to go until the Freight in the City Spring Summit, we thought you'd like to hear a bite-size preview of some of issues being covered throughout the day.

To that end we’ve hijacked our colleagues at Motor Transport and taken over their podcast with a Freight in the City Spring Summit special!

Regular podcast host Christopher Walton is joined by Laura Hailstone and Hayley Pink to talk you through what to expect at Freight in the City Manchester; who is speaking at the summit and why this is an essential event for you to attend.

The Freight in the City Spring Summit 2016 will be held at Manchester Central on 3 March. It will focus on how operators and logistics buyers can work with the public sector, as well as other businesses in the private sector, and how the northern powerhouse (comprising Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester) will drive economic growth in the region.

The podcast is available to download or stream on iTunes.
