One of Europe’s largest road transport events, the Microlise Transport Conference, will take place on Wednesday May 17 at Coventry’s Richo Arena.
The Road Haulage Association (RHA) is once again pleased to play its part and is set to deliver an all-encompassing workshop programme entitled “Driving Britain’s Future”, covering a range of key issues impacting fleet operators.
RHA Policy Director Jack Semple will lead the programme looking at issues such as industry image and perception, and the impact on the skills shortage. Brexit and its implications for hauliers will also will also be featured, with the RHA considering what it means for hauliers. Finally, driver health and welfare will also be discussed.
Semple will be joined by RHA deputy policy directors Colin Snape and Duncan Buchanan in a purpose built workshop space within the exhibition area of the conference, which is expected to welcome over 1,200 delegates.
Commenting, RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “We are excited to be returning again to the Microlise Transport Conference – a must-attend event for anyone working in haulage and fleet operations. The conference has become an established event in the road transport industry calendar and our programme will give delegates the opportunity to learn about a wide range of crucial topics at the top of the agenda for industry professionals.
“The Microlise Transport Conference has grown rapidly over recent years, reflecting the quality and importance of the event and we are looking forward to contributing to what will again be a fantastic and valuable day.”
The main conference programme will see senior executives from the likes of DVSA, Eddie Stobart, Transport Commissioners for Great Britain, Government Office for Science and the Institute of Couriers take to the stage, with further speakers to be announced over the coming weeks.
