The new high speed rail link, represents a huge logistics opportunity as well as a huge logistics challenge. And John Carroll, head of construction and logistics – engineering operations at HS2, will explain exactly what it involved when he speaks at the Rail Logistics Conference next month.
Carroll is just one of the industry leaders speaking at the conference which will look at impact of HS2 on freight transport and logistics as well as the opportunities involved in the building of the project.
The conference will look at the lessons learnt from Crossrail, one of the biggest civil engineering projects ever undertaken in the UK.
This project has demonstrated how effectively managed logistics and supply chains allow a massive undertaking with minimal disruption.
Terry Morgan, chairman of Crossrail, will explain how this was achieved, the progress so far and the challenges still to come.
The Rail Logistics Conference 2015 takes place in Birmingham on 30th November.
