Despite the disruption of COVID-19, transport managers are still required to keep their professional knowledge up to date and run their operations in line with the latest government guidance. With Logistics UK’s second, and final, virtual Transport Manager conference – sponsored by Brigade Electronics – for 2020 less than a week away, book now to secure your place at the not-to-be-missed event on 2 December 2020. 
At the event, to be held virtually via a state of the art, immersive live events platform, Traffic Commissioner for the North East of England, Tim Blackmore OBE, will be giving an essential overview on how coronavirus has affected compliance in the industry, what Commissioners have done to ensure regulation of the industry has continued and their priorities as we head in into 2021.
James Firth, Logistics UK’s Head of Road Freight Regulation Policy, comments: “2020 has undoubtedly been a year full of challenges, however the logistics industry has demonstrated its resilience and ability to adapt to service the needs of the nation. With the importance of the logistics sector highlighted more now than ever before, it is vital that operators and transport managers are up to date with the latest guidance to remain compliant throughout the pandemic and beyond.
“During the event, we will be launching the latest Logistics UK Compliance Report as well as giving an overview of DVSA’s testing and enforcement activities, including its new maintenance investigation process and proposed changes for the future. And, with plenty of Q&A opportunities, Transport Manager will provide operators with the knowledge they need to move forward in these unprecedented times.”
