Leading on Logistics 5th June


'Leading on Logistics' is SEMLEP'S innovative event being held at Cranfield University for all businesses looking to learn and develop in this industry.


The South East Midlands is the chosen location for many leading logistics firms and is fast becoming a centre of excellence for the UK. Many of these firms are at the forefront of exciting and innovative developments for the sector, such as use of AI, drones and delivery robots. This will change the future of logistics.
