Everyone who's anyone in the ports sector will be at the Freight Transport Association's 2008 Port Logistics Conference, to be held on Tuesday 11 November. Chaired by John Fossey, Editor of Lloyd's List in London, the conference brings together all the major stakeholders in delivering an efficient, flexible ports sector that is fully integrated into UK industry's European and global supply chains.

Key themes will include:
