10th edition of Multimodal
The 10th edition of Multimodal, the UK and Ireland’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event, took place from 4 to 6 April at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. Multimodal 2017 attracted almost 9,500 attendees, from all modes and all parts of the supply chain.
Participants were able to attend a range of seminars, some of which were provided by ESC’s member in the UK, the Freight Transport Association (FTA), and focused on topics as diverse as air cargo performance, megaships and maritime alliances, contracts of carriage and how to get the best out of your supplier when outsourcing, Brexit, the last mile in city logistics and the future of rail freight. Another highlight of Multimodal were the FTA Multimodal Awards, which took place on 4 April and recognised significant contributions in terms of carriers’ and 3PL’s performance and environmental efficiency.
The next edition of Multimodal will take place from 1 to 3 May 2018, at the NEC in Birmingham. For more information: http://www.multimodal.org.uk/
