How do Transport professionals stay ahead of developments in the industry?

When Phil Thompson, National Fleet Compliance Manager at Carlsberg said about the Microlise Transport Conference, “I thought this year’s event had a good cross section of hauliers, trade associations and government which provided perspective for the audience. It brought home the fact that technology has a massive part to play in the future of our industry,” it would be safe to assume that any transport professional would get value from attending.

But is it worth taking a day out of your busy schedule to travel to The Ricoh Arena on 20th May next year to attend?

The popularity of the Microlise Transport Conference has grown over recent years, making it an established fixture in the transport industry event calendar. With the conference remaining free to attend, around 1,000 industry decision makers and influencers are expected to attend in 2015, making it the largest conference for road transport ever held in the UK. The programme is designed to help fleet operators…

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Improve service levels
  • Reduce impact on the environment
  • Increase operational efficiency

…all of which are issues at the core of the day-to-day running of any transport operation. As a transport professional, you can hear about how other transport operators have implemented technology to improve efficiency and reduce costs – as well as learn about…

  • the use of dual fuels and the issues faced around infrastructure
  • the use of camera systems to improve safety
  • the use of telematics to save fuel and improve customer service

…all from senior professionals who know the ins-and-outs of the business.

Attendance doesn’t just offer ideas about reducing costs to take back to your organisation – it gives you insight into the future of the industry. In 2014, Governing bodies like the DVSA, RHA, FTA, CILT and The Transport Commissioners Office offered updates on the latest developments in legislation and compliance. With similar content set to be offered 2015, coupled with sessions from leading operators, in essence you’ll receive a comprehensive cross-section of the transport industry and the issues facing operators in the following 12 months, so you’ll be better placed to operate in an ever changing space.

The Microlise Transport Conference offers additional benefits beyond conference programme. The 4,000 square metre space means that a comprehensive exhibition area will offer the opportunity to meet with both industry trade bodies and suppliers to the transport sector, in addition to giving you the chance to network with other attending decision makers and influencers. The event also provides an opportunity to meet OEMs like DAF and MAN to discover more about their latest Euro 6 vehicles. With a variety of suppliers in place, the exhibition area offers a chance to meet companies who may help you solve issues important to your business.

The Microlise Transport Conference encompasses the transport industry in a single day event, offering a wonderful opportunity for learning and dialogue. It is now the biggest and most un-missable transport conference in the UK and I’m proud to be presenting it. Visit the conference website at to learn more and to register your place.
