Logistics and Supply Chain Week will attract those at the very top of this field, to share information and the latest thinking in the industry. It will also be a great opportunity for our students looking for a career in this global industry. Logistics Week is organised by the Centre for Supply Chain Improvement in the College of Business at the University and The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), and is just one of a number of ways the University supports the logistics sector. This year's theme ‘Technology and Innovation in Logistics and the Supply Chain’ is centered around the rapid growth in all aspects of technology and its effects on the industry.

Throughout the week, industry-leading organisations will visit the University to give talks to students. A round table discussion for key professionals (22 February 14:00-15:00) will discuss Modern Slavery in Global Supply Chains. There will also be a free public conference held at the University (22 February 16:00-20:00).

Talking about the event, Professor Jose Arturo Garza-Reyes, Head of Centre for Supply Chain Improvement, said: “This is the fifth year we’ve run Derby Logistics Week. Every year we receive overwhelming responses from large and small companies within the sector to explore the trend and challenges in the market and with joint opinions to identity opportunities addressing the issues."

In previous years we have looked at Low Carbon Logistics, Last Mile Logistics , E-Commerce and this year our ‘Technology and Innovation in Logistics and the Supply Chain’ theme will shed some light on the impact of rapid technology growth on the industry.

Commenting on his appointment as CILTUK President, Robin Proctor said: “This is an important time for our profession; innovation in mobile technologies has placed transport and logistics performance at the heart of business propositions, and investment in innovation, infrastructure and skills is required during this time of economic uncertainty. I hope to play an active role in leading change and promoting CILT’s influence as we head into this exciting era for the logistics and transport profession.”

Lorry Drivers Health SeminarsBOOK NOW
31/03/2018 09:00:00 - 31/03/2018 22:00:00

When:
End of March TBC,
Where: TBC
Meeting Point: TBC

Speaker: Veronica Varela Mato, Research Associate, Loughborough University

Long distance lorry drivers have higher levels of overweight and obesity than those working in other occupations. This increases their risk of diseases linked to obesity, including heart disease, diabetes, and sleep disturbances. Due to the nature of their jobs, lorry drivers are faced with many barriers when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. Lorry drivers in the UK are an ageing workforce, with an average age of 53 years. As a consequence of these working conditions and unhealthy lifestyle choices, lorry drivers have a lower life expectancy than the average working person.

They are currently an ‘at -risk’ and underserved group in terms of health promotion efforts. Given the well-being of lorry drivers can directly affect the safety of other road users, strategies are needed to improve the health of this working group. This seminar aims to present the Structure Health Intervention for Truckers (The SHIFT Study), which has been developed in partnership with lorry drivers and Health and Safety personnel from a UK transport company, by researchers from Loughborough University in collaboration with researchers from the University of Leicester and University of York. The SHIFT programme has been designed to increase physical activity, improve diet and reduce sitting (during breaks and non-work time) in long distance lorry drivers.


During the seminar an overview of the different aspects involved in the SHIFT study will be provided, including the health assessments, a 6-hour interactive education session, use of a pedometer to monitor steps and set goals to increase steps, equipment to carry out exercises whilst in the cab, individual and group based step count competitions and health coach support. In a small study, we found this programme was effective in encouraging drivers to become more active; these results will also be presented during the session. For this study, 336 drivers from 24 depots will be recruited from a transport company. Drivers from 12 depots will receive our health promotion programme for 6 months. The drivers in the remaining 12 depots will continue with their usual routine. If the SHIFT programme is successful in increasing activity levels, and improving driver’s health, this programme could be made available to all professional drivers through continuing professional development programmes which could lead to improvements in health and well-being of all occupational drivers.

This event is targeted at lorry drivers, lorry driver's training personnel, transport managers, health and safety personnel and anyone with a personal interest on the topic.

This event aims to raise awareness of the Structured Health Intervention for Truckers within the transport sector.
