Speaker: Andrew Dartnell FCILT, Chairman, Staffordshire Group CILTUK
Our Chairman, Andrew, has, for more than forty years, planned and accompanied groups of members, some with their wives and guests, on tours to countries far and wide across the world. The main reason for these tours has been to observe how other countries plan and operate their logistics and transport services, noting their many and different activities whilst undertaking their essential tasks of moving people and goods.
What started as a long-weekend away in Brussels for eight people has expanded, over the years, and the group has now visited destinations over four continents from San Francisco to Hong Kong
Andrew will touch upon some happy and interesting experiences over these past 40 years with planning and operating these International Study Tours.

In these challenging times, the need for logistics, transport and supply-chain professionals to compete effectively and efficiently is more critical than ever. Glacially slow economic growth, austerity measures and reduced budgets require that companies supply chains are operating as efficiently as possible.
The purpose of this CILT event is to highlight the benefits to your business that benchmarking will provide. Benchmarking involves a review of your business processes aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of your performance in relation to similar organisations and with overall industry best practice.
The CILT LogMark Benchmarking Club is a business management tool that facilitates gap-analysis of logistics, transport and supply-chain operational activity using widely accepted KPI’s that cover inventory management, transport management, risk management, human resourcing, customer service, operations management and other business disciplines. LogMark provides its members with a comprehensive survey, guaranteed data security, a club-based benchmarking network, and independently audited results.
Come and join us for breakfast here at the institute where our speakers will discuss the benefits of benchmarking your supply chain operation. Our speakers include:

Esprit Warehousing have recently re-opened Trafford Docks to once again bring bulk and large freight into Manchester via the Manchester Ship Canal. It is now possible for ships carrying up to 4,500 tonnes of freight (equivalent to the load capacity of over 150 HGVs) to berth in the heart of the city.
This is an opportunity to visit Esprit’s three acre site, which provides palletised and bulk warehousing, container de-stuffing, freight consolidation and onward delivery throughout the UK. It is also an opportunity to discuss the strategic implications for the region of combined road/water modalities.
Who are Esprit
Esprit was established by Graham Dixon FCILT in 1998 as a European road haulage business working with major blue chip companies such as Tesco, Securicor, TDG & Cargill. Over the following years, our expertise in transport management and handling bulk & palletised goods, coupled with our solid reputation for excellent service levels & reliability, has led to significant organic growth and diversification away from operating our own fleet of lorries.Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.Book online now or contact Membership Services, Tel: 01536 740104 or email: email@example.com quoting the event code: GMG0367Cost: Member: Free; Non-Member: Free
