The Ted-Baker Distribution Centre Derby is a purpose-built omni-channel facility designed to streamline the business’s logistics profile and facilitate future growth through collaboration. A whirlwind journey that began in 2017 with a start-up entailing a warehouse build, system design, stock transition and the embedding of multiple channels, to stability, setting records and advancing service propositions. A perfect example of collaboration, this is a fantastic opportunity for delegates to see first hand the delivery of a complex Logistics Transformation Programme for one of the most dynamic and quirky retailers in the UK. Ted Baker (Ted) pride themselves on being ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. Their quirky nature, love of the brand and product plus their hands on approach to every aspect of their business, truly does set them apart from other retailers. Ted has grown from 7 distribution centres spread around the UK to a purpose built larger facility offering flexibility, variety and competitive service offerings to retain and attract customers. The stock required to replenish Ted stores spread across 308 locations in the UK and Europe is prioritised to maximise the saleability of Ted’s range and that it services eCommerce markets as well as wholesale customers.With the support of XPO Logistics as their 3PL provider and through close collaboration, Ted have streamlined their logistics operation and service offerings. Services range from a traditional Inbound and Returns department to a reverse logistics handling solution which turns around dated stock from stores and re-processes for outlets. The management structure implemented by XPO and Ted Baker also allows for effective and timely, decisive operational decision making. Key events are planned for in huge depth e.g. this year's Black Friday event planning initiated 9 months before the sale which broke records for orders picked, packed and dispatched on one day whilst staying well within SLA throughout the whole of Black Friday/Cyber Monday.Delegates will be taken on a tour of this impressive facility and have an opportunity to ask questions.

From reducing congestion and solo car use, to making the workforce healthier and happier, promoting good leadership in the community, making business cost savings, improving accessibility to work sites to lowering CO2 emissions… travel plans offer such a wide range of benefits that many local authorities have developed travel planning programmes that cover not only the workplace situation, but also schools, residential areas, zonal areas and even individuals. Whilst they are undoubtedly an effective tool for securing outcomes from the development planning process, are travel plans the best way of engaging the business community? This one day course explores the motivational factors behind workplace engagement in behavioural change programmes, equipping practitioners with a tried and tested toolkit for use in developing their own engagement programmes.
