The latest supply chain trends, the effects of disruptive new technologies in logistics, and developments arising from modal shift are just three of the topics to be explored at Multimodal 2018.
The blurring line between retailers and logistics providers and the need to recruit more young people into the supply chain industry will also be debated at the free-to-attend show, taking place at the Birmingham NEC from the 1st to 3rd May 2018.
Now in its 11th year, registration is now open for the three-day event, which has once again teamed up with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the Freight Transport Association (FTA), and the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) for its workshop and seminar series.
“With Brexit imminent and disruptive new technologies affecting the traditional supply chain model, it is now more important than ever to listen and learn from the experts,” said Robert Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director, Clarion Events.
“Our workshop and seminar programme features over 20 panels and workshops led by dozens of industry leaders, debating the most important issues facing our industry today.”
The speaker line-up includes experts from the Port of Dover, iContainers, Network Rail, Agency Sector Management, Freightos, and what3words.
Hundreds of exhibitors are also taking part in the show including Peel Ports Group, DACHSER Ltd, Russell Group, LV Shipping & Transport, Associated British Ports, Malcolm Logistics, and Eurotunnel.
