The challenges, opportunities, and new technological solutions facing businesses across the supply chain post-Brexit will take centre stage at Multimodal 2019, which takes place at the Birmingham NEC from June 18th to 20th.

Other topics including the growing labour crisis, the transformational effects of AI and robots on logistics, and the Fifth Industrial Revolution, where machines and humans increasingly collaborate, will also take a front-row seat during the seminar and panel series at the freeto- attend show, now in its 12th year.

“From Brexit, to the growing labour crisis, as well as rapid technological advances means we are entering a brave new world for the logistics industry and stakeholders should be doing all they can to prepare,” said Robert Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director of Clarion Events.

“Our new Seminar Steering Committee is working hard to ensure all of the latest and most important issues of today will be addressed in the education programme led by top experts from across the logistics and transport sector, who will share important updates on how companies can innovate in these challenging times.”

The three-day show also includes debates looking at important issues such as logistics as the new retail, as well as reverse logistics, reducing food wastage in the supply chain, and how businesses can take better advantage of Blockchain and Big Data.

The Seminar Steering Committee is comprised of James Hookham, Deputy Chief Executive, Freight Transport Association; Peter Ward, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), UK Warehousing Association; Robert Keen, Director General, British International Freight Association; Jervis; Emma Murray, CEO and Founder of Meantime Communications.
