We welcome to our meeting Peter Frost from the Kilbride Group who are developing proposals for a new rail freight terminal at Four Ashes, near Cannock in Staffordshire.

The West Midlands has a shortage of suitable quality development land for large scale rail-linked logistics warehousing.   Kilbride Rail  has selected a 465 acre site to promote as a Strategic Rail Freight Interchange combining a large intermodal rail terminal with logistics warehousing.  The site is unique in that it has excellent road and rail infrastructure which will enable the largest sized containers to be moved on the rail network to the rail terminal.

The Midlands Connect Partnership was formed in 2014 and represents 28 local authorities, 11 Local Enterprise Partnerships, Network Rail, Highways England, airports, central government and the business community.

Midlands Connect will identify transport connectivity improvements to maximise long term economic growth in the Midlands and is underpinned by two main principles:

•    Investing in the ‘One Voice’ approach to ensure the Midlands reaches a unified position on strategic transport investment; and
•    An evidence led approach focused on clearly articulating the transport needs, opportunities and investment priorities for the region.

With £5 million allocated by the Department for Transport (DfT), Midlands Connect is now developing a transport strategy that can realise this potential through a programme of investment up to 2043 and beyond, truly powering the Midlands Engine.

At this event, Maria Machancoses, Programme Director for Midlands Connect, will talk to us about the Midlands Connect Strategy, which is expected to be published in March 2017.  Please join us for what promises to be a very interesting discussion of the strategic transport priorities for the Midlands.

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:

  • Clare Bottle FCILT, Coca Cola European Partners
  • José Noya Noya, Computacenter (UK) Ltd
  • Daryl Chesney, CILT

This is a free event, however spaces are limited, therefore if you would like to attend please confirm at your earliest convenience.
