Along with its owners, Reading Borough Council (RBC), they’re successfully reducing car dependency for access to the area, both for visitors and residents.It is this approach which has made Reading Buses a success story. The fleet of 147 buses is very environmentally-friendly and includes 60 gas buses, and most of the diesel fleet meets or has been upgraded to meet Euro VI standards, dramatically improving the air quality for all Reading’s people too. With free WiFi & many USB charging points available they are making sure customers can stay connected too!In recent years Reading Buses have expanded their operations across Berkshire and have two sister bus companies called Newbury & District and Thames Valley Buses who run a further 29 and 47 buses and coaches respectively.

This allows them to both maintain the highest quality standards and to ensure vehicles are on the road, not awaiting repair or checks.

When: 05 December 2023, 17:00 - 18:30Where: Online (TSUG link)Speakers: Adrian Palmer, Professor of Marketing, Henley Business School, University of Reading Christopher Sturman, Joint Chair of the CILT Retail Forum Factors affecting on-line share of retail demandAdrian Palmer, Professor of Marketing, Henley Business School, University of Reading will initially take a consumer perspective and look at the broader drivers of (and increasingly inhibitors to) online sales growth. Using available statistics, he will explore developments in particular segments / sectors where the growth has been most marked. He will discuss recent research which has illuminated the reasons why online sales have fallen since lockdowns, and highlight the social / economic reasons which help to address the ongoing question of where online sales growth will eventually plateau.He will then look at the cost side factors which have impacted growth and have given cost advantages to online retailers and a competitive advantage relative to bricks and mortars stores, using the rather limited statistical evidence of the role of bricks and mortars stores in facilitating online sales. He will discuss a significant methodological issue as online and offline activities become increasingly interdependent activities.Kerbside capacity and changes in urban logisticsChristopher Sturman, Joint Chair of the CILT Retail Forum with over 45 years in multi modal logistics and supply chain management in automotive, and then in food and drink in all three temperature environments, will discuss current themes being developed in the downstream logistics and services supply area, particularly for food and drink. He will focus on the Kerbside Call for Evidence currently underway in collaboration between CILT UK and the Central London Freight Quality Partnership. This seeks to identify more clearly the mismatch between placemaking, urban planning, and essential kerbside delivery and collection across the whole range of goods and services for customers and consumers.Whilst primarily looking at London, there are obvious synergies with other cities and conurbations where user priorities and transport planning is causing loss of productivity, reliability problems, parking infringement costs, and fleet size issues with increased use of vans adding to emissions, congestion and the health and safety of workers, and the wider population.National and Local Government are beginning to recognise the need to understand the needs of commercial interest in their areas – freight is now on the agenda. Funding is now being provided for further research and Chris will explore some of the wider ideas and project work currently in progress, covering the use of water and rail to feed urban micro hubs and smaller delivery opportunities.
