Zero emission technology is rapidly advancing as the UK looks to decarbonise. There are various options available and each one can be applied to different scenarios. Each bus, coach and freight operator will have different circumstances, with local and longer distance routes, and a range of depot sites and infrastructure to support their operations. 


Key speakers from the electric, hydrogen and fuel cell industries will give us a detailed insight into how each technology is developing and how it can be deployed effectively and efficiently in both the road freight and bus and coach industries over the coming months and years.

Driver and fleet safety:
How well is the logistics industry dealing with the aftershocks of the pandemic!
The logistics industry has had to deal with numerous massive challenges over the last two years to keep the country running but the aftershocks continue to be felt within the industry.

From the driver shortage to a shortage of skilled engineers to maintain and keep vehicles running, to the increase in the cost of fuel and drivers’ wages, to name just a few. If that wasn’t enough, there have been numerous regulation changes such as the new Guidance to Roadworthiness and new Categorisation of Defects.

What will hit the industry next? 
These have all been major issues for all fleet operators, regardless of the size of their fleet but at what cost operational and driver safety? 

Only a limited number of operators will have successfully upskilled and implemented behavioural and culture change across their operation to tackle these challenges. Beit from driver training, driver welfare, repair and maintenance training to Transport Manager training, to ensure they have remained compliant and legal, thereby reducing their exposure to risk and protecting their brand.

Come along and join in the conversation with our panel of expert industry speakers, who will share their top tips and takeaways for successfully dealing with the continuing aftershocks of the pandemic.

Lunch & Refreshments included
