Green transport for Irish operators

[ September 30, 2022   //   ]

Decarbonisation will be the key topic under discussion at FTA Ireland’s Transport Manager Seminar, to be held at The Johnstown Estate, Enfield, County Meath on 19 October.

Delegates will be able to hear senior industry experts and policy makers discuss key legislation and topical issues and identify ways to reduce emissions and achieve Net Zero operations.

Chief executive of FTA Ireland, Aidan Flynn, says: “Our Transport Manager Seminar is one of the most popular events in the Irish logistics industry’s calendar as it provides an in-depth opportunity for delegates to learn about the latest legislative changes affecting the sector. This year’s event, sponsored by DAF Ireland, will focus on decarbonisation and provide a wealth of information about alternative fuels, vehicle developments and sustainability. All this data will be vital if our sector is to transition to a low emission future swiftly and efficiently.

“Delegates will have a unique opportunity to view the very latest electric vehicles from DAF for themselves, as well as the chance to discuss innovations in delivering sustainability in discussion with Kingspan. The chief executive of the Road Safety Authority, Sam Wade, will also be on hand to update delegates on the road safety strategy, that will deliver a road to ‘vision zero’.”

The event will also be supported by Brigade Electronics, ENPROVA, Logistics Associate Apprenticeship Transport Operations and Commercial Driving Apprenticeship.

Aidan Flynn adds: “Undoubtedly, the road to Net Zero will be a challenging one for our whole sector to achieve, but our Transport Manager Seminar will provide the first milestone on that route. Our sponsors will all be on hand with display stands and plenty of information available on the day to support our exciting agenda and discuss individuals’ queries about switching to alternatively fuelled vehicles. We are looking forward to a packed agenda and lots of opportunities for discussion as our industry works together to achieve the country’s environmental targets.”
