UKWA chief to highlight 3PL opportunities

Peter Ward, UKWA’s new CEO, will focus on the opportunities available to third party logistics providers when he speaks at the IntraLogisteX exhibition, the only intralogistics exhibition taking place in 2015.

During a seminar to be held on the first day, Ward will be highlighting how major changes in demographics, society and policy are creating opportunity for 3PLs.

“I am looking forward to addressing these key themes for UKWA and the logistics sector at IntraLogisteX,” said Ward. “They are generating a growing requirement for urban distribution with ‘little and often’ delivery. These are vital challenges but they are areas where UKWA members are ideally positioned to offer logistics solutions that will give organisations a competitive edge.”

IntraLogisteX is taking place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 March, with a number of leading suppliers exhibiting.

IntraLogisteX’s agenda has been accredited by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport with ten CPD hours, allowing attendees to keep up with their professional qualifications. Attendees of IntraLogisteX will gain five CPD hours for each of the exhibition’s two days.

IntraLogisteX, will include a host of special zones and pavilions highlighting different aspects of intralogistics:

• AMHSA members will be highlighting innovations in automated handling and storage.

• There will be a comprehensive seminar programme focusing on critical issues in intralogistics operations.

• Demonstration zones will highlight the latest technology in action.

• And a special feature for 2015 will be a “Future Zone” demonstrating cutting-edge technologies that will impact on intralogistics in the years to come.
