Experts gear up for event

HUNDREDS of transport and warehousing experts are to head for Doncaster next month for a major industry exhibition.

Totally Logistics North will be at Doncaster Racecourse’s exhibition centre on September 28 and September 29.

Those who attend the event will also be offered the tour of what is described as the largest automated warehouse in Europe - Ikea’s base at West Moor Park.

The firm’s 1.4 million square foot warehouse is operated by BLG Logistics Group and services all the Sweden company’s UK stores.

Tours will take place on both days of the event, leaving by coach from the exhibition centre each morning returning in time for lunch.

People attending the event get to try a lorry driving simulator.
