The year 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic reshaped our lives, global dynamics and political and economic priorities. It underlined the key role played by the logistics sector, ensuring the functioning of the EU single market while maintaining a constant flow of essential goods across Europe. With e-commerce purchases booming and the logistics sector enabling vaccine distribution across the world, the industry has become ever more critical.
In parallel, the EU reinforced its ambition under the Green Deal to become climate neutral by 2050, epitomised by the upcoming publication of its ‘Fit for 55’ package. Emissions reductions, renewable and low carbon fuels integration, digitalisation and sustainable infrastructures are just a few of the hot topics that will grasp policy-makers’ and stakeholders’ attention in the coming months and year.
Last but not least, the UK left the EU on 31 December 2020. The many uncertainties surrounding London’s departure have left a wide legislative gap for policy-makers to fill – and logistics is the first industry that is impacted.
Join us for a online panel debate on 10 May between 12:30-14:00.
