New young professional networking group to launch at Multimodal

A new networking group for young professionals working in logistics and supply chains will be launched at next month’s Multimodal event in the UK.
The NextGen Logistics Network will connect online via a LinkedIn group, and companies backing the initiative will pledge to host networking and information events, which will include facility tours to give members an opportunity to connect with peers and better understand the different sectors of the supply chain industry.
Peel Ports will host the first event and will kick-start the initiative alongside Meantime Communications during two seminar sessions at Multimodal 2018 in Birmingham NEC.
Heathrow Cargo and Air Canada are amongst the other companies pledging support, with more to be announced at Multimodal.
Robert Jervis, logistics portfolio director, Clarion Events, said: “To help give this network a boost, we will be focusing on the next generation on day three of the show by hosting two seminar sessions dedicated to young professionals and opening our doors to students.”
The NextGen Logistics Network will bring together members and companies from across all modes, as well as 3PLs, tech companies, and forwarders.
