UK Immigration Minister to address Freight Security and the Migrant Crisis Conference

As the migrant crisis continues to escalate, the wide scale commercial impacts on road haulage and rail freight services are now being felt, with vehicle security, driver safety and loss to goods adding huge costs to the supply chain and loss of revenues to freight operators as well as businesses.

With the freight industry now faced with an unscaleable crisis, LBCG has organised the Pan European Freight Security and the Migrant Crisis Conference (27th-28th April 2016, London), an industry and government backed initiative designed to provide practical, timely solutions to the most urgent freight security issues being faced.

With a high-level influential panel of speakers, including the Immigration Minister at the UK Home Office, James Brokenshire MP, Christopher Chope MP, and John Keefe, UK Director of Public Affairs at Eurotunnel Group, the event will answer the industry’s immediate need to know questions including:
• 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?

Dedicated Expo showcasing to help mitigate the risk of fines

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.

Ria Babber, Conference Producer at LBCG who has spearheaded this initiative, confirmed: “The Pan-European Freight Security and the Migrant Crisis Conference is the conclusion of several weeks of in-depth research with over 50 organisations in the field.

“Now at one conference you will hear the very latest multi-stakeholder strategies from government agencies including Home Office, UK Parliament – as well as prominent speakers from Eurotunnel, SGP Police Unit Force, Port de Calais, road haulage and rail freight carriers, RHA, FTA and specialist technology providers to uphold the security of all transport systems, guarantee driver security and increase safe movement of goods across borders.”
