Transport Minister Baroness Vere to tackle key sectoral issues at the Microlise Transport Conference


Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport (DfT), will discuss the importance of the road freight industry as a driver of economic growth when she presents virtually, at the Microlise Transport Conference on 18th May 2022, at the Coventry Building Society Arena (formerly the Ricoh Arena) in Coventry.

In her presentation, Baroness Vere will also discuss the need for a stronger and more diverse talent pipeline in the sector and will outline a range of Government and other funding supports for organisations that aim to address the current driver shortage and other key sectoral challenges.

“With industry debate across a myriad of issues including smart motorways, clean air zones, decarbonisation and road network management, Baroness Vere’s presentation will encourage important debate about how our sector is positioned for the future”, said Nadeem Raza, Chief Executive Officer at Microlise.
