Transport and Logistics Forum – East Midlands Chamber

This forum aims to address specific issues in the sector around the movement of goods, people and services, also around capital investments in the regional infrastructure developments, improving links to ports and airports, the impact of new strategic rail freight interchanges and technologies used to reduce operating costs.

This particular forum will be held in partnership with Invest Ashfield & Mansfield (IAM)  and looks to expand on their campaign  around supporting the transport and logistics sector in their region.

Invest Ashfield and Mansfield (IAM) are committed to providing dedicated support to companies considering Ashfield and Mansfield as a business location, or establishing operations here. The event will bring together a number of speakers to discuss a range of topics providing delegates with useful information, contacts, detail of the opportunities in the region and will provide an update on the D2N2 LEP Sector Action Development Plan for Transport.

Provisional agenda items:
