We are pleased to invite you to the Logistics Roadshow at the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce on Monday May 13th from 10.30 am To 1 pm. The Roadshow will conclude with a networking lunch. Participation is free of charge.

The United Kingdom and the Netherlands are close allies and our business relationship is strong and of vital importance for both. To emphasise our close ties and explore future mutual business opportunities, the Holland International Distribution Council (HIDC), together with 20+ representatives of the Dutch logistics industry consisting of (logistics) service providers, (air)ports and regional development organisations, will be organising a Logistics Roadshow in Manchester.

During this event, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the main ports of the Netherlands (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Port of Rotterdam) will discuss how they can facilitate further trade. There will be additional short presentations on customs, making tax digital and on EU/NL fiscal matters. This roadshow will be a great opportunity for shippers, logistics companies, service providers and government organisations to meet and discuss (logistics) opportunities over a networking lunch. The roadshow will facilitate new connections and further solidify the British-Dutch partnership.
