Logistics UK is bringing back its Virtual Transport Manager conference following previous success with the event.
The trade body understands that transport manager is a busy role, but an important one within any transport operation.
Therefore, it has taken out the time and effort of travelling to an in-person event with the virtual alternative.
Specifically, it is an opportunity to maintain compliance and legislation knowledge to ensure transport operations run smoothly.
The events will take place on 11 November.
The Virtual Transport Manager events were first held during the height of the pandemic in 2020.
After that, they were run alongside in-person events last year.
The one-day conference will cater to those who are unable to attend in person.
Meanwhile, in-person events are currently being held around the country.
Logistics UK confirmed that both the events will follow a similar format, therefore providing essential information and guidance on legislation.
Kate Jennings, Logistics UK’s director of policy underlined the importance of attending.
“It is vital that transport managers stay up to date with the latest compliance and regulatory information.
“Therefore, Logistics UK’s Transport Manager conferences are well established in the industry as a great place to obtain all the necessary briefings.
“We appreciate that it is not always possible to travel to an in-person event,” added Jennings.
“However, it is still important to ensure that transport managers keep their knowledge and expertise up to date.”
Meanwhile, Logistics UK has secured involvement of Traffic Commissioners for virtual and live events.
In addition, the events will include the Transport Manager calendar and a compliance update.
Other items on the agenda include vehicle in-service standards, managing safety technology and managing fleet insurance costs.
