Under a cloak of overnight deliveries, behind-the-scenes efforts and a ‘head-down, get-on-with-it’ culture, the operations and achievements of the road transport, cold chain storage and fleet management sectors have been obscured for far too long.
No one could have planned for the unprecedented challenges of dealing with a global health pandemic and the implications of the UK’s departure from the EU at the same time. Yet such conditions have brought spotlight recognition and praise to a deserving industry working hard in adversity.
This has brought together fleet management, supply chain management, cold chain storage, road haulage and mobility technologies. This momentous period in UK history has shown our industry’s courage and tireless dedication to keep essential supplies moving to the consumer.
Basking in the glow of this recognition, there’s been a step change and a period of reflection. Business owners are asking questions such as ‘What now should be the priority?’ and ‘ What challenges will we face and how will this impact our bottom lines?’ In a rapidly evolving sector, the 2021 Commercial Vehicle Show is set to be the most important industry event in recent history
Key trends such as electrification, digitalisation, automation, urbanisation and separation have been identified as policy makers aim to drive a reduction of carbon emissions. First- and last-mile delivery solutions continue to grow and logistics companies negotiate the movement of goods to and from the continent now the UK is no longer in the EU.
