The two-day event includes a full conference programme, a networking dinner, exhibition, and live demonstration of the latest quiet logistics equipment.

Transport for London will share London’s best practice on re-timing deliveries and showcase its work on facilitating out-of-hours deliveries, while other cities from Europe and the US will discuss the work they have implemented to conquer the freight challenge and allow off-peak deliveries.

Speakers include Claire Perry, parliamentary under secretary of state for transport; Tim Slater, managing director of Transport UK and Ireland DHL Supply Chain; and corporate ambassador for Jaguar and JCB, Lord Digby Jones.

More than 200 delegates including logistics operators, local and central government regulators, policy makers and academics gathered yesterday to discuss how out-of-hours deliveries can become a normal part of the supply chain. A similar number is expected to return today.

Twickenham yesterday announced the re-opening of Twickenham Cellar for private events ahead of next year's Rugby World Cup following the refurbishment if its conference and hospitality facilities.
