COMING UP NEXT IN 2021

Freeport webinar

4th March 2021 : Freeports

The UK Government will shortly be evaluating bids to establish at least seven new Freeports. The first are expected in 2021, as part of at least 10 across the whole of the UK.

But how might this affect your cargo? How might it benefit your supply chains? Are there any risks or downsides?

If you are a manufacturer, retailer, importer, distributor, exporter or 3PL – you need to know the answers to these questions. And the Multimodal Connect Freeport webinar will allow you to ask these – and any other questions you might have – of our expert panel. They will explain the benefits, timescales and issues you will need to understand to help you better plan for your business.
