Royal approval for warehousing and logistics convention
22 April 2015
HRH The Princess Royal, Patron of Transaid, will visit the Annual Convention of the International Federation of Warehousing Logistics Associations (IFWLA) at the Town Hall in Liverpool, Merseyside on Tuesday 2 June 2015.
During the visit, Her Royal Highness will meet representatives from the UK and global logistics community who will be congregating in Liverpool for the Convention and UKWA (United Kingdom Warehousing Association) hosted conference. The Princess will also speak about the importance of international development charity Transaid’s work and support from the International community.
UKWA adopted Transaid as its official charity in 2013. In addition to financial support, UKWA encourages its member companies to contribute directly towards Transaid’s work by providing volunteers to take part in technical secondments overseas.
IFWLA's President – Derrick Potter, Chairman of Potter Logistics UK, said: "We are honoured and tremendously excited to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to our Convention in Liverpool. A great supporter of the Logistics Sector, Her Royal Highness will see how our global industry is embracing change and creating opportunity, as well as supporting growth around the world."
The IFWLA Convention’s four-day programme of business and culture is planned for some 250 national and international delegates, comprising manufacturers, retailers, third party logistics (3PL) providers and other supply chain and logistics practitioners.
Bringing together all sides of the global logistics industry, the Convention is under-pinned by a two-day conference to be held on 2-3 June, at Liverpool’s historic Town Hall.
Hosted and organised by UKWA, the UK’s 3PL trade body and voice for the logistics industry, the conference theme is: ‘Change equals new opportunities - the changing face of global logistics, and the opportunities for you’. The Town Hall is only minutes away from the Convention hotel, the Hard Days Night Hotel www.harddaysnighthotel.com.
