Logistics UK’s Transport Manager conference series, sponsored by Bridgestone Tyres, is set to return this autumn with live events planned at 11 venues around the UK.

Kicking off on 21 September at Southampton’s Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, the series of conferences will highlight key issues for fleet managers, provide professional advice and help attendees remain compliant and up to speed on the latest legislative developments.

Delegates will hear from a range of senior industry figures and policy makers, with experts on hand throughout the day to advise on legislation and compliance issues.

Speakers will cover topics including logistics in urban centres, low emission vehicles, working safely with alternative fuels, and compliance update.

James Firth, Logistics UK’s head of road freight regulation policy, said: “We are delighted to once again be running this conference series in person. These popular conferences enable busy transport managers to stay up to date with ever-changing legislation and good practice advice.

“Compliance is vital in the logistics industry; it has been a challenging 12 months for operators and the Transport Manager conferences provide operators with peace of mind that they are equipped with all the information they need, as well as giving them the opportunity to hear from senior figures in the industry and have their questions answered.”

Greg Ward, Bridgestone’s commercial business unit director, said: “Bridgestone Tyres is thrilled to be sponsoring Logistics UK’s Transport Manager series, with each event allowing us to share our ground-breaking commercial products and services with the perfect audience.

“The conferences provide an invaluable insight into many of the burning issues facing the industry and the broad range of topics they will touch upon shares so much in common with our business as a whole. We are looking forward to meeting with delegates face-to-face once again and discussing how we can help their business needs.”

The price for Logistics UK members is £299 plus VAT for the first delegate and £269 plus VAT for subsequent delegates; for non-Logistics UK members the cost is £399 plus VAT for the first delegate and £369 plus VAT for subsequent delegates.  Prices includes access to all sessions, refreshments and a take-home bag with useful information.
