Workshops include updates on the new International Maritime Organization (IMO) container weighing regulations and the European Union (EU) Union Customs Code



London, UK, Thursday, 10th March 2016 - Multimodal’s education programme will take an in-depth look at new legislation affecting all sectors of the supply chain, as well as featuring an intensive professional development course aimed at air cargo professionals.


The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) will run its three-day Professional Development Workshop programme during the show, from the 10th to the 12th May 2016 at the Birmingham NEC.


In addition, World Shipping Council Vice President Lars Kjaer will join experts from the International Cargo Handling and Coordination Association (ICHCA), the TT Club, and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) for a session hosted by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) on the new IMO container weighing regulations.


“There is an unprecedented wave of new legislation affecting all sectors of our industry and it has never been more important to be well informed and prepared,” said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.


“At the same time, we need to ensure that we are nurturing the next generation of industry leaders, and so we are pleased to include the TIACA workshop as part of that commitment.”


TIACA’s programme gives an appreciation of the entire air cargo supply chain and covers market and competitive analysis, brand and revenue management, understanding and analyzing financial statements, business ethics, and leading teams.


The FTA’s seminar day, on the 11th of May, includes a session on the new EU Union Customs Code, as well as the Home Office Haulier Security Accreditation Scheme.


Multimodal has also teamed up with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) for a programme on the 10th of May, which includes a look at packing and securing containers as well as a workshop on getting business started in Asia.


“We are very focused on delivering practical advice and support as part of the Multimodal experience,” said Jervis.


“A full listing of the programme is available now on our website.”


This year’s Multimodal is set to be the biggest in the show’s nine-year history and will also feature an enhanced gala awards dinner on the 10th of May at the NEC’s new Vox Resorts World venue, hosted by broadcaster John Sergeant.


This year’s FTA Multimodal Awards features five new modal categories and voting is live on the Multimodal website.


Last year, over 8,500 supply chain decision makers visited hundreds of exhibitors at Multimodal. This year sees the return of DSV, Dachser, Wincanton, DB Schenker, Malcolm Logistics, and DP World London Gateway and new exhibitors American Airlines, Heathrow Airport, China COSCO, Yusen Logistics, Chapman Freeborn, Davies Turner, and Ewals.


Registration for the free-to-attend show is online using a system, which uses the power of social media to connect visitors and exhibitors.
