Speaker: Adam Crowther – Strategic City Transport Services Manager – Bristol City Council

Bristol City Transport Operations Centre is a state of the art, multi-purpose centre hailed as ‘world class’ by emergency planning chiefs which opened in October 2017. It brings together some of Bristol’s critical support services and acts as a control centre in the event of a major emergency.

The new centre houses the council’s Emergency Control Centre, Traffic Control Centre and Community Safety (CCTV) Control Rooms together in a single space for the first time. These teams provide essential public safety services that utilise 700 CCTV cameras around the city.

A large part of the facility’s role is to manage the city’s traffic network and monitor the flow of traffic around Bristol, making adjustments to signals and putting diversions in place to keep traffic moving. The centre also provides a place for staff from transport providers to work together with the council’s traffic management team, providing greater reliability in public transport services and more accurate real time information about services.

What's certain about Brexit? Uncertainty. The full impact on supply chain and global trade is yet unknown, however, there will be impact. Is there still time to optimise your operations? Absolutely.

With the next chapter in the Brexit saga still uncertain, implementing mitigation strategies and contingency planning should be the focus for many organisations.

Taking advantage of existing Customs Processes and Procedures from HMRC can help minimise the amount of Import Duty to pay while maximising cash flow.

This event is targeted at any UK based importer or manufacturer trading with the EU or 3rd countries, such as China, who are interested in improving operational efficiency and compliance with HMRC.

Highlights of attending:

  • Understand how to plan/action the possible post-Brexit impact on your supply chain
  • Learn how to automate customs compliance documentation for high volumes of multi-modal shipments and boost productivity
  • Discover how to accelerate the speed, accuracy, and transparency of multi-country customs 
  • Simplify and enhance the process of reducing or maintaining zero duty payments

NB: Please note that the structure and topics covered may change based on the political situation that might unfold over the coming weeks/months.

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Blujay Solutions, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.
