With 10 separate conferences, 4 major launches, 5 dinners and functions and a free 3 day trade exhibition including daily workshops on technical issues, Freight Week is living up to its theme of connecting people with ideas.
Freight Week addresses ownership changes, legislative changes, technology development and best practice behaviour in a rapidly changing freight marketplace. Freight Week will appeal to a broad range of stakeholders ranging from port operators, transport operators right across the field to local government and including freight owners, freight movers, equipment vendors, solutions providers as well as Government regulators, policy and enforcement personnel.
Many events are free and others are reasonably priced to encourage maximum participation. The conferences are generally half to one day in duration and designed to brief participants on current issues including drug and fatigue management, industrial relations, innovation, intermodal and ports, freight outlook, career and local government relations.
The Freight Expo will run over three days and feature a number of free workshops on best practice amongst freight operators, interactive technology workshops and truck and trailer technology sessions. Launches of new campaigns are expected to be strong with four already listed for
