Inspecting and maintaining vehicles and trailers effectively in a today’s increasingly technological world is becoming more challenging for commercial vehicle engineers. To help those responsible for the maintenance of fleets of all sizes, Logistics UK will be holding its first virtual Fleet Engineer Conference on 21 October 2020.
Using a cutting-edge, immersive conference and networking platform, the one-day event will provide delegates with exclusive opportunities to hear about the very latest developments in commercial vehicle technology, maintenance legislation changes and best practice advice from leading names from across the sector. Sponsored by Brigade Electronics, Clarios, Continental Tyres, ExxonMobil, Logistics UK Recovery and Schmitz Cargobull, the event will be ideal for those with responsibility for specifying commercial vehicles, ensuring roadworthiness, compliance and maintaining vehicles.
Phil Lloyd, Head of Engineering Policy at Logistics UK, comments: “Vehicle technologies in logistics are evolving constantly with an increasing number of new applications and different vehicle configurations making fleet management a more complex engineering task. With these technological developments coming in thick and fast, it can be challenging to stay ahead of the game. Logistics UK’s Fleet Engineer Conference 2020 will focus on how engineers can inspect and maintain vehicles & trailers effectively – embracing new and evolving technologies, but without losing sight of the basic, most essential practices. And, thanks to cutting-edge virtual conference technology, delegates can enjoy the event from the comfort of home or work.”
