Pan-European Freight Security And The Migrant Crisis, London, UK
European Migrant Crisis Adding $1bn To Supply Chain Costs
'If they can offer more secure parking and our vehicles can park up in more secure places, it would reduce the risk of people getting into them. That would alleviate the issues where drivers are parking up and people are getting in the vehicles, then being found by customs and then being charged fines like it is the drivers fault - that is creating issues for us'
In view of the escalating crisis, the Pan-European Freight Security And The Migrant Crisis conference, will be taking place on April 27 and 28 in London, UK, and will bring together all stakeholders involved with and responsible for mitigating the commercial impacts of the migrant crisis. Ensuring the safety and security of the Pan-European road haulage and rail freight services will be at the heart of the conference.
The Pan-European Freight Security And The Migrant Crisis conference will go one step beyond facilitating cooperation between the Home Office, UK Parliament, Eurotunnel, Calais Police Union, Road Haulage and Rail Freight carriers, RHA, FTA and specialist security technology providers to maintain the security of all transport systems, guarantee driver security and increase safety movement of goods across borders.
Dedicated Expo Showcasing State-Of-The-Art Technologies To Mitigate The Risk Of Fines
- £7million spent on improving security at Calais
- Eurotunnel has pledged an additional £12m for security at the end of the tunnel
A dedicated technology display and demonstration area has been designed to supplement the main conference format, where economics and capabilities of the very latest state of the art technologies will be assessed, including Anti-Slash Curtains, Perimeter and Electronic Beams, Warning Systems, Anti-Tamper Alarms, CCTV, X-Ray Scanners, GPS Systems, Hi-Tech Fencing and Intrusion Detection Systems.
Key Questions That Will Be Answered
What is the plan of action to further mitigate disruption and improve security at ports, terminals and approaches?
How are policy makers planning to improve secure parking & terminal fencing throughout the UK, France and across Europe?
What multi-purpose technologies are available to detect migrants and improve security of vehicles?
KEY SOLUTIONS DELIVERED
Finding Methods Of Ensuring The Security Of All Transport Systems
'How do you mitigate challenges like this where you know you are taking a vehicle from Turkey to the UK, and it has potential to be broken into, to deviate from its route - Where is driver security? What happens when you are stuck in a traffic jam? We want to understand from other people who have de-risked the whole situation'
The Pan-European Freight Security And The Migrant Crisis Conference has been developed in light of conversations like these with Europe's road haulage and rail freight operators, as well as companies moving high-value goods across borders. The conference, supported with a state-of-the-art technology expo will deliver key solutions, including:
- Government strategies for managing the crisis & securing ports & facilities
- Road Haulage security regimes, measures to secure parking facilities & ensuring driver safety
- Minimising and mitigating against channel tunnel disruptions
- Discovering advances in security technologies for securing cargo
- Understanding good-in-transit insurance strategies and steps for reducing the risk of getting fined
