Invitation: Exploring RTMS and ISO management systems as a driver of road transport sustainability Booking essential (Other initiatives listed as well)


Road Transport Management Systems (RTMS) and various ISO standards promote safety and sustainability in the road transport sector. Certification to these standards is often a prerequisite for tenders and contracts as their value is being increasingly recognised by the corporate world. This workshop looks at how leading transport companies embrace these management systems as a key driver of their business sustainability. Leading researchers also discuss new innovative technologies being used to promote safety and sustainability in road transport operations.
