MULTIMODAL DELEGATES TO HEAR HOW TECH INNOVATION AND PEOPLE POWER WILL DRIVE A SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS INDUSTRY


Over forty industry leaders will share insight on how to build a sustainable future for logistics at the free-to-attend event next month

London, UK, Wednesday 15th September 2021 : Experts from across the logistics industry will share insight on how to build more resilient supply chains at the free-to-attend Multimodal event at the Birmingham NEC, 19th to 21st October 2021.

Panels of thought leaders will introduce new ideas about how tech developments such as machine learning, smart data, and 5G can drive efficiencies and support a sustainable future for logistics.

The importance of mental health wellbeing in the workplace and practical advice on how to build a diverse Next Gen workforce as part of a vision for a better industry will also be tabled at a session chaired by Peter Kelly, Senior Psychologist, HSE and including Corinne Lamoureux, Mental Health First Aid Instructor, Mental Health Switch.

“We must ensure our industry benefits from the lessons of the last 18 months and rebuilds with a more sustainable outlook,” said Robert Jervis, Director, Multimodal.

“After so many months apart, it is time to come together, reconnect, and find new ways of working together.

“Multimodal is proud to be one of the first supply chain exhibitions to open its doors post COVID and provide a much-needed opportunity to meet face to face and drive new business opportunities.”

There will be a shipper perspective on the state of the industry post Brexit and COVID as part of the opening plenary session, chaired by Shanker Singham, Chief Executive Officer, Competere.

Seminar sessions at the three-day event will also cover the impact of Brexit so far and what to expect next from import controls for trade from the EU next year in a panel joined by Robert Windsor from the British International Freight Forwarding Association (BIFA) and Peter MacSwiney, Chairman of ASM.

David Wells, Chief Executive, Logistics UK will introduce the association’s Logistics 2021 Report, with Logistics UK hosting sessions across the first two days to cover policy updates and trends across the modes.

The UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) will host two sessions, and Zumtobel Group will deliver a case study on how to introduce sustainable lighting solutions to freight facilities.

Day three will be dedicated to Next Gen and apprenticeships.

Multimodal brings together thousands of supply chain decision makers from across the industry to connect and grow business.

Voting is still open online for the Multimodal Awards, which will be announced at a gala dinner on the 19th of October in Birmingham.

About Multimodal

Multimodal 2021 will celebrate fourteen years of putting shippers, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, importers, and exporters in front of exhibitors who offer the latest logistics and supply chain solutions.

The three-day show between 19th and 21st October 2021 will offer a unique opportunity to make valuable face-to-face contact with new prospects and existing companies.

Shippers and cargo owners attend to improve their businesses; by finding ways of moving their products more efficiently and by meeting new suppliers.

Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof, and is characterised by key vertical sectors, including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, electronics, FMCG, food & drink, fashion, pharmaceuticals, construction, aerospace, energy, real estate, recycling, paper/print and perishables, amongst others, whilst horizontally, the show covers all modes of transportation, including sea, road, rail, air, and inland waterways.

This matrix design makes Multimodal incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers – whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance.

Multimodal delivers a bespoke series of seminars targeted at helping supply chains run more efficiently, as well as offering two networking events, the Multimodal Awards, and the Multimodal Mixer.

This attendance next year will be bolstered by brand new initiatives, including Match-making service to connect shippers – our VIP visitors – to each other and to exhibitors, and dedicated Freight Forwarders’ Village with logpods.
