Sue Terpilowski OBE, Chair, Ports, Maritime & Waterways Forum, CILT, said: "Time is running out for all parts of the sector to work out how they will respond to the new legislation and what role they need to undertake in the logistics supply chain. This event will provide a good platform for all professionals within the supply chain to communicate their ideas and to understand how the implications of these new regulations can be managed."
