The 2019 RTF Conference, which is being held at the Wairakei Resort near Taupo on September 24 and 25, will have Central Focus as its theme.

"We believe that now is the correct time to focus on the issues and topics that are of central concern to our livelihoods and the wellbeing of those we employ and do business with," says RTF chief executive Nick Leggett.

"There are many challenges we currently face that are central to the industry's future success – from workforce shortages to increased health and safety compliance and, of course, safety out there on the road."

Leggett says that the Forum, along with Region 2 and CARTA – who are running the conference – "look forward to welcoming you to Taupo to discuss these issues and plot a constructive way through some of our collective challenges."

The conference programme, registration details, accommodation, sponsorship packages and more are available at www.rtfconference.co.nz

Leggett says that "September may still seem a long way off, so for those of you wanting to get your teeth into some meaty discussions before then, the Freight Futures 2030 Conference, which RTF is an official supporter of, is being held on June 24 and 25 at the Grand Millennium Hotel in Auckland.
Key stakeholders from throughout New Zealand's freight, logistics and supply chain industries will discuss their future form. Delegates from road, rail, sea and air will gain insights into global and domestic factors impacting on and affecting NZ's freight environment, while benefitting from advice on how to create a resilient, efficient and future-ready business.
There will be insights on everything, from the impact of freight hubs to decarbonisation and a peek behind the grille at the technology that will power the industry into the future.
Freight Futures 2030 is co-located with the Fleet Safety Conference which will address safety management and the tools for efficient fleet management. By registering for one conference you will also be entitled to attend sessions at the other. This will enable delegates to make the most of the two days and tailor their conference experience.
RTF members are entitled to a 15% discounted rate for these conferences. To qualify, enter the promotional code M2D69U while booking online at www.conferenz.co.nz/freight2030.
