Cold Chain Federation Chief Executive Shane Brennan said: “I’m really looking forward to getting together in person with Cold Chain Federation members and friends at the TCS&D Show in September. As an industry we have plenty to reflect on but the Show will also be a great chance to look ahead to new opportunities and discuss new ideas.
“The Cold Chain Hub seminars will be full of discussion, opinion and advice about not just the most important issues for the cold chain for today but also the challenges and opportunities coming down the track. I have no doubt our expert speakers and their discussions will be engaging and insightful, as we gather at last to look to our industry’s future together.”
