The retail environment is changing fast as consumers shopping habits and expectations are bombarded with new and innovative ways to consume goods and services.

Maintaining competiveness, remaining profitable and meeting customer demands are just some of the challenges facing businesses in this environment. Ensuring products are available and reaching the consumer when required are essential to remain effective, and therefore choosing the right logistic solution throughout the supply chain is a big decision to get right.

This event will give attendees the chance to see what is happening in the current market place in the UK and wider with regard to goods carrier solutions using real customer examples. Current best practice, new technologies and views on the future will be explored. Supporting technologies such as repair and maintenance tracking and asset management tracking will be presented and discussed.

The event is intended for decision makers and stakeholders interested in understanding available solutions and trends and help them identify criteria to consider when comparing current and looking at new goods carrier solutions.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

HS2, the biggest civil engineering project in Europe, will transform this country’s connectivity, creating around 25,000 jobs and fuelling economic benefits worth more than £100 billion to the UK.

In 2009 Lord Adonis launched HS2 and we are now poised to see it become a reality. Royal Assent, received in February 2017, marks the project’s most important milestone so far. Permission to put spades in the ground will start a whole new wave of conversations, debates and contracts. The 2017 National Rail Conference will be at the centre of these discussions.

 

Topics covered will range from what will happen over the first months of construction and what opportunities there are for suppliers, to what we can expect from the rolling stock and the transformational effect HS2 could have on transport and the economy.

 

Delegates will also learn about proposed projects and investments associated with HS2, the connectivity beyond the high-speed line, how HS2 will be a sustainable and environmentally-friendly project, and how the right communication will ensure the public understands fully the benefits of a high-speed line to the whole country during a time when construction will bring about uncertainty for some.

 

Members of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport are entitled to a discounted rate of £245 + VAT (usually £295 + VAT).

Brian Szukala, Transfer Knowledge Partners - Vocational Training Requirements for a Changing Industry
Sarah Smith and Alison Riggott, Walkgrove - Distance learning for the New Generation

There are major changes within and related to the professional driving profession ahead of us. Those need to be prepared and supported by vocational education and training in order to reach their full potential but also to avoid a further increase of already todays’ deficit of skilled workers in this field that belonged continuously to the Top Ten jobs employers are having difficulty filling with competent employees over the past decade.

It is, therefore, of major importance to think ahead of time and to develop a vision of this profession in order to get ready for the changes that are ahead of us. The consortium of the European project “FutureDRV” representing specialist organisations from Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Hungary and the UK addresses this challenge in the upcoming three years of project work.

The FutureDRV consortium invites experts and stakeholders on professional driving and professional driver qualification for a first expert round table in order to give the FutureDRV project an initial impetus and direction for the upcoming project work by exchanging on:

  • trends and innovations within transport and their impact on professional drivers’ qualification
  • the future role and function of professional drivers within transport
  • opportunities and challenges of future training for professional drivers 

The project is funded through the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission.

Programme:

09:30    Registration and coffee
10:00    Welcome, Kevin Richardson, CEO, Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport

15:00    Closing and farewell, James Tillyer, Transformotion 

The main aim of the FutureDRV project is to explore the future of professional driving and the competence requirements relating to it, looking forward to around 15 – 20 years from now.

The project results intend to give stakeholders in the field (such as employers, education providers, social partners or policy makers) a reliable perspective of the changes that are ahead and the influence on both the current and future workforce of professional drivers.

The project started in September 2016 and will last for three years. There are six project partners from Germany, UK, Sweden, Austria, Hungary and France.

The initial project task is to get a comprehensive overview of professional driving and the context that it will take place in from both stakeholders and interested parties.

The project consortium will look at the future of professional driving from several perspectives to ensure they get a comprehensive source of information to build on.

The UK project partner, Transformotion, would like to invite stakeholders and interested parties to attend this free event. There are limited spaces available and only one space per company / organisation, so register for this event without delay!

The Sustainable Supply Chain - How do we reduce wastage and remain flexibleBook Now
Start Date:04/07/2017 10:00:00
End Date:04/07/2017 14:00:00
Event Code:COR0344

Where:
No 1 London Gateway, Stanford Le Hope, SS17 9DY

Can your business REDUCE WASTE through Supply Chain flexibility?

The economic cost of ‘supply chain’ food and drink waste is estimated at around £5 billion.
Leading retailers and their trading partners are now looking at reducing food and drink waste in the supply chain; highlighting how collaborative working can reduce waste. Waste is a by-product of an unhealthy supply chain, whether it be food, product, transport, or cost based. Waste is impossible to eliminate; however solutions are available to minimise it.

All businesses must also balance efficiency with contingency, and in today’s global supply chain we must ask how can we minimise waste and remain flexible.

Speakers from the Supply Chain, Retail, and Sustainability industries will discuss this topic in detail and how they see how supply chain solutions can reduce wastage and if these solutions can also maintain an agile supply chain.

The speakers:

1. Emile Naus, Partner and Technical Director, LCP Consulting
2. David Bateman, Group Managing Director, SH Pratt Group
3. Steve Malkin, Founder of The Planet Mark
4. Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway

This event will showcase the ways in which companies can:

• Minimise waste
• Examine supply chain assets
• Identify best practice process and procedures
• Deliver commercial benefits that are embedded and sustainable
• Minimising empty transport journeys
• Contribute to environmental and commercial sustainability

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to reduce wastage by changing elements within your supply chain.
This unique event will be held at DP World London Gateway, a state of the art deep sea container port and logistics park, where guests will also be able to go on a tour of the premises to view live operations and the latest developments.

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, DP World London Gateway, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

Managing Trade Compliance Complexity in a Modern Global Supply Chain: And the Impact of Brexit?Book Now

Exclusive Roundtable Event

When: 12th July 2017, 08:45 (for 09:00) - 11:00
Where:
Oracle Corporation, 1 South Place, London, EC2M 2RB


In almost every industry and every supply chain, especially those with highly regulated goods, managing customs and trade compliance on a global scale is a complex task. From product innovation and development, through the procurement or manufacturing and movement of goods, trade compliance is an increasingly competitive differentiator in a modern dynamic supply chain.

Managing the critical exceptions often gets lost in the noise of everyday movements, and when compliance processes fail, both the shipment and the financial workflows can be adversely affected. Not only does the cost of doing business increase, the inability to deliver against promised lead times can hamper revenue growth. Hence, companies cannot afford to be reactive and wait for an incident to occur before analysing their customs and compliance processes. Leading companies explore and implement industry best practices, integrate trade compliance into their supply chain processes and put measures in place to bring visibility and control across their sites and country operations.

At progressive companies, trade compliance teams are always adapting, especially as they look to serve global markets to achieve their growth ambitions. They centralize and enforce compliance policies at a corporate level, standardize on modern automation platforms, and execute locally in each region.

In our exclusive roundtable event, we will:

• Learn how trade compliance has increased in importance and visibility within a modern supply chain
• Look at primary business drivers behind the emergence of modern, multiconnected and accessible trade management automation platforms especially cloud/subscription based models
• Hear how a leading manufacturer streamlined and standardized, their customs and compliance processes, to minimize risks, support growth, and yield a culture of global compliance
• Understand the complex and changing requirements with local government agencies and discuss how BREXIT may increase the focus on global trade management processes
• Round-up of the current global trade management research from leading analysts

Mark Corby, Chairman, Trade Facilitation Import/Export Panel (TFIEEP) will share his perspectives, having been involved in this domain for a long time.
Join us for the breakfast to discuss amongst peers. We look forward to seeing you there.

Breakfast will be provided. 

Book online now or contact Membership Services, Tel: 01536 740104 or Email: membership@ciltuk.org.uk quoting event code COR0345.

Cost: Members - Free; Non-Members - £00.00
