The program for Freight Week 2011, organised by the Victorian Transport Association (VTA) together with the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), has been finalised and is now available in print and electronic form.
VTA Chief Executive, Philip Lovel AM said “Freight Week is a freight industry owned and sponsored event with a ticket price around a tenth of commercial conferences, yet its value in networking and professional content is immense. The themes for 2011 concern the top five issues that drive our businesses and strategies: people and industrial relations, technology as the next frontier for productivity improvement, environmental issues, safety in our workplace, and freight strategy.”
Freight Week 2011 will cover a number of key issues that will give value to all sectors of the industry. Conference sessions include:
· Freight People and Careers – Monday 5th September
· Industrial Relations – Monday 5th September
· Waterfront – Tuesday 6th September
· Technology – Tuesday 6th September
· Vehicle Service and Repair – Tuesday 6th September
· Environment – Wednesday 7th September
· Waste Management – Wednesday 7th September
· Emergency Response – Thursday 8th September
· Safety – Thursday 8th September
· Freight Agenda – Friday 9th September
The event will attract freight owners and movers, freight solutions providers, Government regulators, policy and enforcement personnel and a variety of other interested parties.
Leading speakers, panel sessions, break out groups and an exhibition contribute to the exchange of ideas and to debate topics relevant to our industry. Strongly supported by a range of sponsors, Freight Week is a low cost, high content week. With specialist themes and flexible tickets, attendees can pick the days that are most relevant and make the most of the information and networking opportunities throughout the week.
Freight Week 2011 is being held from Monday 5th to Friday 9th September 2011 at the Melbourne Park Function Centre (Tennis Centre).
