Be prepared for disruption in Birmingham from 1 May

[ April 10, 2018   //   ]

Thought leaders from tech companies and start-ups will share their insights on Digital disruption and Brexit at the Multimodal at the Birmingham NEC on 1-3 May, say show organisers, Clarion Events.

Digitisation, digital transformation, and disruption will be discussed by innovators including INTTRA, Freightos, Nexiot, and Stowga, during the Supply Chain Excellence Seminars.

Brexit challenges and opportunities, including a focus on perishables and a session on the Northern Ireland question will be explored by the British International Freight Association (BIFA), Agency Sector Management (ASM), the Port of Dover, and Eurotunnel.

Clarion’s, logistics portfolio director, Robert Jervis, said: “We are living through an unprecedented period of change and disruption, and with all of the challenges and opportunities that inevitably follow, keeping up to speed with developments can be hard,” said

“Multimodal brings together leaders from across the supply chain to network, grow business, and learn from each other, and we are looking forward to hosting three days of insight and discussion from innovators who will help us understand how to stay one step ahead.”

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has once more teamed up with Multimodal for a day of seminars including discussions on airfreight and port operations and will bring a panel of experts to look at the global implications of Brexit.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) will also host sessions exploring topics from the warehouse of the future to attracting new talent.

The fourth Freight Transport Association (FTA) Multimodal Awards take place on the 1st of May, with over 800 VIPs expected to attend a gala dinner at the VOX Conference Centre.

Voting for the modal awards, which recognise best-in-class across air, road, rail, and maritime services, is still open online at
