This open conference will emphasis ideas, feedback and discussion from delegates to create a vision and plan for ‘future fit’ transport and logistics. The morning session will focus on ‘what’ – global trends and challenges for society, business and our environment as we move towards 2035. After lunch, we move onto ‘how’ we get there, including technology, work and the ‘sharing economy’. In each session, we will hear from expert speakers then break into groups to discuss and highlight the trends, challenges, barriers and enablers to shape policies and pathways to our future vision.
