A Logistics UK conference has been announced for June 2022.

The in-person ‘Fleet Engineer’ event will take place at the British Motor Museum on 23 June 2022.

One of the driving forces behind the return of the conference is the evolution of vehicle technology.

For example, many operators are now looking at innovations such as autonomous vehicles and fuel cells.

Therefore, it is important that transport engineers have as much information as possible about these technologies.

The Logistics UK conference will provide delegates with updates on a range of subjects.

For example, breakthroughs in trailer technology and cold-chain decarbonisation will be detailed.

Furthermore, there will also be updates on maintenance advice as well as electrification and fuel cell technology. 

Importantly, there will be a wide range of high-level speakers at the Logistics UK conference. 

Specifically, the head of vehicle policy and engineering at DVSA, Neil Barlow, has been confirmed.

The DVSA man will explain the agency’s plans for the future of testing and enforcement. 

Meanwhile, attendees will be able to partake in several Q&A sessions throughout the day.

Phil Lloyd, head of engineering policy at Logistics UK, explains the rationale behind the event.

“Vehicle technology is advancing at such a rate that it is becoming increasingly challenging for commercial vehicle engineers,” he said. 

Continuing, Lloyd added it was essential for engineers to have the latest information for inspection and maintenance. 

“It is essential that you are armed with the latest information needed to safely maintain these vehicles,” he added. 

“Logistics UK’s Fleet Engineer conference will provide the knowledge needed and will also share insights into future technologies. 

Concluding, Lloyd said: “The event is a must-attend for anyone with responsibility for specifying commercial vehicles and ensuring roadworthiness.”
