Scots to debate logistics challenges at FTA event

[ March 4, 2020   //   ]

The Freight Transport Association’s second annual Logistics Scotland Conference, to be held at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel in Falkirk on 7 May, will debate the industry’s key role in helping the economy to grow, along with how it can optimise services while remaining flexible and responsive to changing demands.

Content for the one-day event includes operational and strategic presentations on all modes of transport across Scotland, focussing on future workforce challenges, sustainability, movement of goods between Scotland and Northern Ireland and modal shifts between road and rail.

Policy manager for Scotland Mags Simpson said: “Increasingly, Scotland’s economy is dependent on the efficient and cost-effective movement of goods and services, connecting the nation’s businesses both domestically and overseas. With so much economic change affecting the way we do business, it is vital that the logistics sector is kept up to speed with the latest developments and has the opportunity to debate the issues affecting the sector’s future successes.  The Logistics Scotland Conference will provide the ideal opportunity for operators in all modes and sizes to come together and debate the topics which will shape our industry moving forwards – it’s an event not to be missed.”
