MD Andy Downton to speak at Microlise Transport Conference 2014

Downton’s Managing Director, Andy Downton, is one of the leading industry figures speaking at the Microlise Transport Conference 2014 next Wednesday (16 May). 

Held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, the annual conference and exhibition is a major event in the logistics calendar, and a chance for logistics professionals to share best practice and hear expert speakers discussing some of the pressing challenges facing the industry. 

The focus of this year’s event is on how fleet operators can successfully ‘do more with less’ – meeting their customer’s expectations in as efficient, economic and environmentally conscious manner as possible.

Andy Downton will be taking to the stage for the first slot of the afternoon (14:30 – Delivering the Difference in Logistics) to talk about the investments Downton has made in order to achieve greater efficiency across the business and tackle ever-increasing fuel costs.

Last year, Downton installed a state-of-the-art telematics system from Microlise at all of Downton’s depots across  the UK. The in-cab system has so far provided annual fuel savings of as much as 10 per cent across Downton’s fleet of trucks.
