Graham Lackey, Group Managing Director of specialised transport and logistics provider Brit European, will deliver an update on the company’s innovative Environmental Efficiency Project at the Microlise Transport Conference, being held on the 20th May 2015 at The Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
The ambitious Environmental Efficiency Project has seen Brit European address the issue of the lack of infrastructure in the UK for the successful operation of a dual fuel fleet. During his session, Graham will outline the key challenges ahead for dual fuel and how the creation of the necessary infrastructure may fit into the long term future of alternative fuels. He will also outline how the adoption of dual fuel has benefitted Brit European, along with the use of technology to run an efficient transport operation.
Graham Lackey joined Brit European as Managing Director in 2008. He possesses extensive experience across FMCG at brands such as Imperial Leather and Carex, before spending time at Jordans, the cereal company, and Princes Foods. Graham made his first move into the logistics sector as Managing Director of Uniloads/Vmove Solutions, before joining Brit European where he now heads up the UK and European businesses.
The Environmental Efficiency Project, led by Graham, is central to Brit European’s development strategy for the future and involves utilising equipment design, aerodynamics, telematics, staff training and alternative fuels to drive down environmental impact and drive operational efficiency.
“The Microlise Transport Conference is a superb opportunity to meet with industry peers and hear from an array of different speakers,” said Graham Lackey, Group Managing Director of Brit European. “It offers a real opportunity for learning, with delegates taking away valuable insights that can affect and improve their own businesses”.
Set to be the largest conference ever held in the UK for transport and logistics industry decision makers, with around 1,000 delegates expected to attend, the Microlise Transport Conference will explore the issues affecting the industry through a one day programme featuring speakers from operators, industry associations and regulatory bodies. The conference will once again be chaired by transport industry lobbyist and FairFuel UK campaigner, Quentin Willson.
“Graham Lackey at Brit European will deliver an excellent session to delegates, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” said Bob Harbey, Executive Director at Microlise. “Graham spoke at the conference in 2012 to introduce delegates to the Environmental Efficiency Project being undertaken. It will be fascinating to learn about the progress made, and the challenges faced as Brit European pioneers in that area of the industry”.
