An opportunity for the private sector to highlight their views
Have your say at the Transport for the North Freight and Logistics Conference on Thursday 14th January at Leeds City Museum, as part of the finalisation of the draft freight strategy which will be presented to Government in March 2016.
We are particularly keen for representatives from the private sector to attend to understand the challenges we face and would welcome stakeholders to direct their contacts from the freight and logistics sector to the http://www.tfnfreight.org/ website to register for the event.
There are a number of issues we need to highlight in particular connectivity, not just in the North; and not just rail which will feature significantly during the conference.
We must highlight connectivity with our national port infrastructure and in particular East West connectivity on road as well as rail. UK policy lacks any coherent strategy; this is a serious block to development for the Northern Powerhouse, improving our infrastructure is fundamental to productivity and a competitive UK.
