Sir Peter Hendy CBE will make keynote address
The event, sponsored by Transport for London (TfL), the event will highlight the challenges transport operators in London face over the next two to three years, examining those challenges in more detail and suggesting possible solutions.
The FTA conference will also consider changes to London’s road space, and focus on the competing needs of cyclists, buses, pedestrians, infrastructure projects.
With the increasing numbers of residents in the capital, London’s road space will be changing in 2015 and beyond, and these issues will be discussed during the event.
London’s Transport Commissioner, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, said: “It is impossible to underestimate the importance of freight in the Capital as without it London could not function. As we face these changes together we’re pleased to support the FTA as it works with its members and the wider industry to understand and address these challenges.”
Managing Freight in London will be chaired by FTA’s new Chief Executive – David Wells, and other speakers will include the Metropolitan Police Commercial Vehicle Unit, Bikeability, Westminster Council, major logistics companies and customers, as well as industry and FTA policy experts.
The event takes place on Tuesday 2 June at The Kia Oval, home of Surrey County Cricket Club
