HLA ran a workshop in conjunction with Aid & Trade London as part of its Logistics and Fleet Theatre on 26th April 2018. The workshop provided keynote speeches on a number of current hot topics key to promoting a stronger technical, operational role for the private sector and a potential changing role for aid organisations.

The two key topic areas – cash transfer/blockchain and innovation in delivery were each followed by a panel discussion on the issues raised, with the aim of capturing some concrete steps for follow up.
