IRTE Conference 2016 speaker line-up unveiled 20 June 2016

Ricardo, Shell, DAF, Iveco, Scania, Volvo, LowCVP, TfL, CLOCS, FORS and DVSA, are among organisations presenting at this year’s IRTE Conference (28 September; Eastwood Hall, Notts).

Other headline appearances at this year’s national IRTE event will include Arup, Carlsberg, Cemex, Reading Buses, Ryder and Cambridge University.

All will be presenting on a theme of ‘Driving fleet operational efficiency, profitability and compliance’ – and delegates can expect a packed agenda aimed at highlighting best practice and new technologies capable of cutting costs, improving competitiveness and ensuring compliance.

Senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell will outline key strategic objectives of the traffic commissioners and provide a legislative update on O licence obligations.

The technology keynote will be delivered by LowCVP’s Andy Eastlake, who will review the implications of technologies ranging from multi-fuel engines to hydrogen power, hybrids, range extenders, platoons and autonomous vehicles.

Other speakers include: Ricardo’s Andy Noble on Euro 7; and Carlsberg’s Philip Thompson on the firm’s transformational fleet efficiency project.

There will also be sessions on selecting better trucks – in light of new technologies – as well as cutting operational costs and improving sustainability, with Dr Phil Greening, of Heriot Watt University, and David Cebon, of Cambridge University.

Delegates can select from three seminar streams during the afternoon session, covering legislation, technology and fleet operational advances.

The event is preceded by a conference dinner on 27 September, where winners of the inaugural IRTE Fleet Engineer of the Year awards will be announced by Mrs Bell.
