Event description

Description

freight people is an exciting new forum for people working in transport.

Meetings are designed to bring together individuals from all areas of the transport community in convivial, relaxed surroundings to openly discuss transport hot topics, share best practice, offer support, and to create a network to educate, assist and collaborate in tackling and resolving industry issues.

Each month there will be a presentation on a topical subject and the opportunity to ask questions, not only on the subject matter of the presentation, but to a panel of industry experts.

At the January launch we shall be discussing the hot topic of Bridge Strikes - how to avoid bridge strikes, training for drivers, what if a bridge strike occurs and what the Traffic Commissioners and Network Rail expect.

Award winning transport lawyers Backhouse Jones shall be delivering the presentation. Backhouse Jones are known for being at the vanguard of transport related legislation and undertake the lion's share of public inquiries before the Traffic Commissioners of the United Kingdom. The firm was the winner of Boutique Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards 2019 and represents transport operators of all sizes at every judicial level up to and including the European Courts of Justice. We are proud to have Backhouse Jones as a sponsor of freight people attending all of our breakfast meetings.

In addition we will be hearing from a large vehicle operator who has suffered a ‘bridge strike’ event and who has kindly agreed to come along and share their experience of the consequences.

We have some exciting speakers lined up for future meetings, including DVSA, NavCIS and a speaker from National Counter Terrorism Policing. We will also be discussing changes in legislation impacting on the 'self employed'. You too will be given an opportunity to suggest a topic for discussion at future meetings.

There are no membership fees. Attendance at the launch and/or first meeting is free and thereafter attendance is £10.00 per forum, which includes refreshments and a light breakfast.
