Brexit – your questions answered

[ January 20, 2017   //   ]

This year’s Multimodal show and conference will include a series of briefings on Brexit on 4-6 April in Birmingham.

They will be led by experts from companies including Eurotunnel, Oracle, KPIT and Agency Sector Management.

The sessions are part of a series of seminars and workshops giving insight into how to run a slicker supply chain at the UK and Ireland’s leading logistics show, which last year attracted over 9000 supply chain decision makers.

The sessions will look at emerging trends, as well as the impact of new regulations, and include workshops on improving air cargo quality, mega vessels and alliances, inland waterways, and rail freight.

“Multimodal takes place just weeks after Article 50 is invoked, triggering developments which will have a huge impact on all sectors of our industry,” said Robert Jervis, logistics portfolio director for show organiser, Clarion Events.

Multimodal has once more teamed up with the Freight Transport Association, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and the United Kingdom Warehousing Association to put together the educational programme.

Speakers from companies including Heathrow Cargo, DB Schenker, and Transport for London are amongst the experts leading the debate.

Over 300 exhibitors from across the logistics industry will take part, including Kuehne + Nagel, Heathrow Cargo, Port of Dover, CMA CGM, UPS, Descartes, the British International Freight Association (BIFA), Associated British Ports (ABP), Canute Group, Dachser, and VIIA/SNCF Geodis.

The third Freight Transport Association Multimodal Awards will also take place during the event, with over 600 VIPs expected to attend a gala dinner on 4 April at the VOX.
