A keynote speaker will be a senior government cabinet minister, and it will also look at the political situation as well as giving guidance for businesses trading with the EU.

Alex Veitch, General Manager of Public Policy at Logistics UK comments: “While the final shape of the EU-UK trade agreement is yet to be determined, there is still much that UK traders can do now to ensure that the goods they depend upon continue to flow across our borders. Logistics businesses must be ready to switch to new systems and new methods of trading from 1 January 2021 if their operations are to remain functional post-EU Exit. We encourage all those moving goods internationally to attend our virtual conference, so they are best prepared for the new environment.”
