Event Director Charles Troy said: 'We're bringing together for the first time on a significant scale the key stakeholders and solutions providers who have answers on how to increase sustainability in the transport of goods and mobility of people, and connecting them with the business end-user.'
He added: 'It is important that Eco2 Transport is free to attend, because it is absolutely a must-attend event – increased sustainability is no longer a business choice, it's a necessity, and in the current economic climate, the related cost efficiencies cannot be ignored.'
