Transport Finance Forum
Cars, vans, lorries, buses, tankers, diggers, tractors, cranes, trains, boats and planes to name but a few vehicles, and yet all vital to the UK economy.
It’s imperative that SMEs the in transport, haulage and logistics sectors keep their businesses moving forward. And that’s where a good broker comes in, identifying the right funding for a variety of commercial challenges from investing in vehicles and premises to releasing cash tied up in assets or invoices to name but a few. With insight from a leading industry expert, this forum looks at the funding options available and how brokers can acquire the knowledge and relationships they need to steer their clients towards the right solution.
The forum will commence with some housekeeping and an opening address from Norman Chambers, managing director of the NACFB. He will update attendees on developments within the Association. Norman will be followed by some introductory words from our lead sponsor, Haydock Finance before we hear from industry expert Thomas McLennan, head of policy and public affairs at the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) on the state of play within the UK transport sector.
Then the roundtable sessions will begin. This will give brokers the chance to talk directly to our sponsors, Haydock Finance, Aldermore, Cambridge & Counties and United Trust Bank, all active lenders to SMEs operating in the transport, haulage and logistics sector. There will be breakout tables for attendees wishing to have one-to-one conversations with the forum’s sponsors.

Adam Bamforth, Regional Broker Manager
