Why attend?

Following positive feedback from the inaugural Freight in the City Expo at Alexandra Palace, London, the discussion now moves beyond the confines of the London metropolitan area to the Spring Summit 2016.

Ensuring the efficient movement of freight, fuels and raw materials is vital to the prosperity of the Northern economy.

Freight in the City Spring Summit is a one-day conference exploring how the freight and logistics industry can work with the public and private sectors to drive economic growth in the North of England.

Taking place at the Manchester Central conference and exhibition centre, this free-to-attend event will focus on what the government’s strategy for creating a Northern Powerhouse means for the freight industry and its customers. It will also examine how local government and city region authorities can benefit from including freight strategies in their growth plans.

Topics covered will include:

• improving connectivity and congestion between northern cities through building a better flowing strategic road network;

• ensuring freight can be effectively and efficiently transported from the Northern ports to the rest of the country;

• urban delivery lessons learnt by London and how the North can avoid similar pitfalls;

• the importance of collaboration between the freight sector, private businesses and local authorities;

• the need for a multimodal freight strategy for the North to support trade and freight movement.

Confirmed speakers include:

Helen Smith, Head of Logistics & Environment, Transport for Greater Manchester

Bruce Carnaby, Urban Freight Development Manager, Clipper Logistics

Kevin Rooney, Traffic Commissioner for the North East of England

Warren Marshall, Group Planning Director, Peel Ports

Malcolm Bingham, Head of Road Freight Management Policy and Head of Policy North of England
