FTAI Transport Manager Seminar back and bigger than ever

Does your business operate commercial vehicles as part of its everyday business? If so, make sure you are up to speed with the very latest developments in vehicle operations and legislation, Brexit and logistics in general, by attending the Freight Transport Association Ireland’s Transport Manager Seminar.  This year’s event, which is expected to be a sell-out, is to be held at Johnstown House Hotel Enfield, County Meath on March 5, 2019.

This year’s seminar will give delegates the chance to hear from a range of senior industry experts and policy makers and will include a keynote session from the Minister of State for EU Affairs, Helen McEntee.

Other topics to be covered by the event’s knowledgeable speakers include skills shortages, apprenticeships, alternative technologies, vehicle safety, risk management practices, and the impact of Brexit on Ireland-UK trade. The event features a stellar line up with speakers from the FTA, the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, the Climate Change Unit of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, the Logistics Associate Apprenticeship and the Health and Safety Authority.

Aidan Flynn, General Manager of FTAI, commented: “FTAI’s Transport Manager Seminar, now in its ninth year, is an essential tool to help keep transport managers up-to-date with the very latest industry developments. Skills shortages, sustainable operations and operational compliance issues are all of vital importance to the industry in preparing for the future and this event provides a great opportunity to prepare for a new trading environment. With ongoing uncertainties surrounding Brexit, effective business planning is becoming increasingly difficult for the freight distribution and logistics sector. FTAI’s Transport Manager Seminar will help to ensure that all those involved in moving goods and services across the country and internationally have the very latest information and knowledge they need to prepare their businesses for future success.”

To attend, the cost for FTAI members is €250 plus VAT; for non-FTAI members the fee is €300 plus VAT but an early bird rate of €200 plus VAT is available for tickets booked before January 20.
