The UK Warehousing Association is to hold a regional event in Scotland on 20 September at Malcolm Logistics Heritage Centre in Glasgow.

This is the latest in a series of events that UKWA has been rolling out across the UK in the run up to its UKWA National Conference in March 2023.

Chief executive Clare Bottle (pictured) said, “We would like to extend a warm welcome to members as well as non-members to attend our Scottish showcase, where they will have opportunity to meet others from the Scottish warehousing sector, hear from expert industry speakers and learn more about the role of UKWA in supporting warehouse operators.”

Speakers will include Andrew Malcolm, chief executive of Malcolm Group, who will share the company’s strategic plans for the future, Billy Allison, MD (Scotland) of Briggs Equipment, discussing managing supply chains and going green, and Bottle, who will speak about how UKWA is engaging with key industry issues, such as skills and labour shortages, automation and digitalisation, sustainability and challenging government policy.

The day, which will start at 11.00 and end at 16.30 BST, includes a buffet lunch and a tour of the one million plus sq ft of warehousing at Malcolm Group’s rail connected complex.

The event is free, but UKWA is warning that places are limited and advising interested parties to book early.
