As part of our commitment to support the public and private sector to be better prepared to face the challenges Clean Air Zones pose to UK freight, fleet and logistics operations, Cenex will be hosting a free-to-attend evening Networking Drinks Reception in:
- Birmingham on Tuesday 31st January 2017 at iCentrum
- Nottingham on Tuesday 7th February 2017 at Nottingham Contemporary.
The events are targeted at anyone from the public or private sector who operate vehicles in and around these two Cities and will provide opportunities to network with fellow fleet and vehicle operators, as well as representatives from Local Government, to discuss the various issues and opportunities that air quality management zones pose for local businesses and logistics operators. We all know that Clean Air Zones are coming, and this event will provide support and advice on how best to prepare for changes, and offer opportunities to share best practice and learning.
A business card and knowledge exchange will also take place throughout the event in order to facilitate future conversations as to how local business can be better prepared to face these exciting challenges. Both events will follow a similar format:
