RHA Forum for the future

09:00 Arrivals

09:45 – 11:20 Session 1 – RHA: Facing the Future & Preparing for the Road Ahead
The economy, energy prices, decarbonisation, regulation, international trade and changing customer expectations; the business landscape is fraught with uncertainty. This session will explore the themes that will shape the commercial environment for hauliers; our expert speakers will consider potential implications and possible responses.

11:20 – 11:50 Refreshments

11:50 – 13:10 Session 2 – Making Your Business Future Fit
The pressure on road transport to decarbonise is intense and yet no single powertrain technology provides the solution for all use cases. Our speakers will explore the relative merits of different vehicle technologies, including battery electric, hydrogen and other powertrain technologies, progress on depot and roadside charging infrastructure and the financial implications for your business.

13:10 – 14:10 Lunch

14:10 – 16:15 Session 3 – Moving Towards Net Zero in the Real World
This session includes a series of case studies exploring the real-world opportunities and challenges of transitioning a fleet to zero emission technologies.

Putting People at the Heart of Your Business

Road transport organisations need to look to retain the talent they

already have along with attracting a younger and more diverse workforce.

This session will give advice and support to organisations on how to

help their people be more informed about their mental and physical

health and wellbeing.

Collaborative Logistics in a Connected World

How can you position your business for growth? Our customers want

more responsive, adaptable road transport and the logistics ecosystem

is set to become ever more integrated. Our cross-industry panel –

representing warehouses, ports, the cold chain and rail freight – will

explore some of the opportunities and challenges facing operators as

we move towards a world of greater collaboration.
