UK: The Institute of Refrigeration’s International Refrigeration Committee (IRC) is to host an online business briefing covering the challenges facing the food and drink logistics industry post Brexit.
The half-day event will answer some of the questions raised following the departure of the UK from the EU and how the industry is reacting to the new trading relationship with the block. It is described as an opportunity to hear from UK and international experts on how new solutions are being developed to solve some of the challenges facing the food and drink logistics industry serving UK and EU customers.
The briefing will be partly dedicated to various aspects of refrigerated transport with Gérald Cavalier of Cemafroid covering the technologies currently underpinning the sector along with likely future developments.
A presentation from Cambridge Refrigeration Technology will look at the requirements of the international refrigerated road transport agreement ATP and how the regulations can help to smooth the traffic of goods between the UK and the EU.
The science of food storage will be the focus of a presentation delivered by London South Bank University’s Judith Evans, with the topical subject of vaccination transportation being covered by Philip Greening of Heriot Watt University.
Shane Brennan of the Cold Chain Federation will explain practical economic and legal hurdles faced by the industry as well as the additional requirements being imposed and which further steps need to be taken to ease the situation. Challenges linked to current emission limits and the effect of maintaining a refrigerated vehicle at temperature in a holding park will be at the centre of a talk delivered by Brian Robinson of Low CVP Partnership.
The webinar will take place on February 25. Participation costs £42.00 (inc VAT).
