About this Event

A seminar organised by NatWest Bank PLC and Lombard Finance in association with CILT Eastern Region and Invest ESSEX

10th October 2019 , Room MAB117 , Michael Ashcroft Building , Anglia Ruskin University , Chelmsford 6.00-8.30 pm including a light buffet

According to Pitchbook (a supplier of data to the private equity industry), the total amount of venture capital deals in what is referred as FreightTech or Logi-tech in the first quarter of 2019 was US$1.6 billion. Even allowing for the fact that the US digital freight forwarder Flexport on its own successfully raised $1 billion in February, this dwarfs the $1.3 billion raised by the sector in the whole of 2018.

Companies large and small are looking a different ways of doing things - Amazon have for some time offered third party retailers to use their fulfillment systems and Ocado’s latest recent annual report showed that the fastest growing part of its business is the supply of its systems and technologies to other retailers.

The Maritime Knowledge Hub , the UK’s first maritime and port technology incubator (a joint venture between Liverpool John Moores University, Wirral Council and Peel Ports) opened recently and Wincanton, the largest British owned logistics company, last year set up W2Labs, its own accelerator. There’s a lot going on.
