Developments in connected and autonomous vans and the move to electrification will come under the spotlight in an online conference by Logistics UK this week.
Taking place on Friday 27 November, the virtual Future Van Conference will enable both members and non-members to get to grips with the latest changes and challenges, including Electrifying your Van Fleet, Autonomous Vehicles, Ultra-Light Logistics and EV Power Solutions.
The event will again include a talk from expert futurologist Fergus McVey of 7th Sense Research UK, who will discuss ‘The World Now’, looking at the pandemic and how it has impacted future plans and developments.
Denise Beedell, vans and urban policy manager at Logistics UK, said: “The vans market is changing rapidly to meet challenging environmental targets and soaring customer demand for greener deliveries and servicing, with more van operators seeking to electrify their fleets. We are excited to offer this event to provide delegates with the information they need to move forward in this developing market.”
Delegates will also be able to ask questions to speakers via text or video chat and engage with industry suppliers online in the Exhibition Hall.
Places cost £199+VAT for Logistics UK members or £250+VAT for non-members.
