There is still time to book for the Freight Transport Association’s Transport Manager Conference, which takes place at Titanic, Belfast on Tuesday 3 March. The conference provides all the information and advice transport managers need to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing transport scene in Northern Ireland.
The conference, sponsored by Brigade Electronics and Volvo Trucks and supported by media partner Export & Freight magazine, will cover the key issues facing transport managers in the year ahead and provide invaluable advice that is relevant to everyday operations, including a keynote address by Minister for the Environment, Mark H Durkan.

“It’s just a couple of weeks until the key transport conference for Northern Ireland takes place. The feedback from speaking to people within our industry has been extremely positive and this is reflected in how quickly the seats are filling up.
