In in age where ’movement efficiency’ is under the spotlight, monitoring how your assets move, can save money and do so in a cleaner way, is paramount. In a sector that has been ravaged by the pandemic, on one hand, but has had a responsibility to keep the UK moving, and do so with one eye on net zero, never has there been more of a focus on ‘how’ you mobilise. 

Focus Webinar 3, in our series of 6 in 2022, sees us look at OPTIMISATION FOR DECARBONISATION, THOUGHT LEADERSHIP, CASE STUDIES and INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS. Hear from industry experts, as we look at the complex issue of last-mile logistics, including how we can turn delivery vans into ‘mobile hubs’ that meet smaller Micro-vehicles and transfers packages! Innovation at its most creative. Join the conversation and help shape the way UK business optimises fleet operations.
