Each speaker will make a brief introduction, setting out their position, with questions from delegates directed by Managing Editor of Motor Transport, Christopher Walton and conference Chair Quentin Willson.

The conference is expected to attract upwards of 1,000 delegates and has grown in recent years to become the largest road transport conference in Europe.

Alongside this session, the Microlise Transport Conference features speakers including HRH The Princess Royal and a range of key organisations, as well as an exhibition area of industry associations and suppliers.
