Speaker: Cllr Geoff Hill, Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead


The Thames Valley great is delighted to welcome Councillor Geoff Hill who is Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment.


Councillor Hill will provide an update & a presentation on the new Maidenhead cycle routes now the public consultants are fully completed with settled designs.

Cyclists in Maidenhead now have a dedicated new 1.3km cycle route, making healthy active travel across the town safer and more convenient, thanks to the completion of the £2.8m Missing Links route. 

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has constructed the new route in phases, with the final part focused on upgraded paths, a new bridge, landscaping, and signs at Town Moor. The whole route connects current and future residential areas in the north with the town centre and railway station to the south. Pedestrians can also use it.


The overall scheme, mostly funded by government’s Local Growth Fund through the Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), includes improvements at a number of key locations to help people transition to cycling or walking for shorter journeys, supporting the council’s work to tackle climate change. 

The council would like the route to be adopted into the National Cycle Network in due course.

We know many businesses are struggling to recruit people with the right skills.

Working with schools, special schools and colleges is a proven way of developing young people’s skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

That’s why Generation Logistics is working with The Careers & Enterprise Company on the launch of their new free self-assessment framework: Employer Standards. The framework enables businesses to understand what good careers education outreach looks like. Employers who have already completed the Employer Standards say it is helping them develop talent pipelines, close skills gaps, increase diversity and attract job and apprenticeship applicants.

This joint webinar with the Careers & Enterprise Company, there will be an opportunity to hear from employers about how it has benefited their businesses. We will show you how to use the tool and demonstrate how it will benefit your business.

Once you have signed-up for the webinar, please register to use the Employer Standards tool. 

The Careers & Enterprise Company is the national body for careers education in England, supporting schools and colleges to deliver modern, 21st century careers education. Their mission is to help every young person find their best next step.

The Planning, Budgeting and Delivery of Large Scale Tour LogisticsBOOK NOW
03/07/2024 18:00:00 - 03/07/2024 19:30:00

 

When: 3 July 2024, 18:00 - 19:30
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: John Corr, Senior Project Manager, Global Motion Ltd

After 25 years in the road materials manufacturing industry, John took the opportunity presented by redundancy in 2000 to start an MBA at Kingston University. The part-time position he took up to provide material for assignments and his dissertation rapidly evolved into a challenging and rewarding career in logistics which we will hear about in John’s presentation.

In the past twenty-three years John has planned and delivered solutions on world tours for Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Hugh Jackman, David Bowie, Beyoncé, and Celine Dion whilst being a member of the team’s working on tours for U2, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Shakira, Madonna, Walking with Dinosaurs, and many others. 

John will explain the processes gone through to develop the best multimodal mix for the movements of complete shows between continents and within some of the regions of the world.  He will highlight some solutions created to address challenges in proposed tour plans, where the regular scheduled services available, could not achieve the required door to door transit times. Finally, some instances where proactive monitoring by Global Motions of events impacting on carrier progress allowed early intervention to prevent shows being postponed or cancelled.

In 2017 he was called on to summarise the potential impact of BREXIT on the live event industry with particular emphasis on European tour logistics and was invited to accompany UK Music’s live group to meetings with the Department of Culture Media and Sport to review the report he had written. Despite him identifying all the major challenges to post BREXIT event logistics frustratingly none were resolved before the UK left the EU.

Brighton & Hove Buses looking to the FutureBOOK NOW
09/07/2024 17:30:00 - 09/07/2024 19:00:00

 

When: 9th July 2024, 17:30 - 19:00
Where: Zoom Meeting
Speaker: Ed Wills FCILT, Managing Director, Brighton & Hove Buses

Organised horse bus routes first began running in Brighton and Hove around the middle of the 19th Century particularly once the London railway arrived in 1841.It was in 1935 that Tilling formed a new separate company the Brighton, Hove & District Omnibus Company Ltd (BH&D) as an autonomous subsidiary of the parent group.  Buses were branded as Brighton, Hove & District and continued to run alongside the Corporation’s trams and the motor buses run by Southdown.
 
It’s pleasing that nearly 90 years later, the Company is still locally branded and, as then, is an autonomous subsidiary of a London based parent – the Go-Ahead Group – which, like Tilling, has transport interests in London and other parts of the UK.  Much has happened in the intervening years, and Ed Wills, Managing Director, will outline the company’s plans for the future.

Redhill’s major rail freight terminal that didn’t happened – why, and what can be learn from that?BOOK NOW

When: 16 July 2024, 17:30 - 19:00

Speaker: Guy Bates, Head of freight development, Network Rail

In the early ‘90s London was planned to be ringed by a series of ‘Strategic Rail Freight Interchanges (SRFIs)’ where materials would be transported by rail and locally delivered by road, and Redhill was indicated as the best location to the south of London.

Guy Bates, Network Rail’s Head of Freight Development will reflect on why that didn’t happen and what lessons can be drawn from that.  As we seek to decarbonise of supply chains Guy will outline how those lessons can be applied to support future modal shift in the next decade.

Speaker: Clare Bottle, chief executive , the UK Warehousing Association

Clare Bottle is CEO since 2021 of the UK Warehousing Association and Vice-Chair of Women in Logistics UK, which she co-founded 15 years ago with Ruth Wareing during a career that has taken her through the chemicals, construction and food & drink sectors.  Her strategic leadership experience stems from varied board-level involvement at CILT, Transaid and chairing a school board. At UKWA, which she joined from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, she has pursued an agenda of economic, social and environmental sustainability, as well as driving diversity and inclusion. At the 2023 CILT Awards for Excellence, Clare won the prestigious Sir Robert Lawrence Award, which recognises the lifetime achievement of an individual, for their outstanding and sustained contribution to the profession of logistics and transport. The Year of Warehousing is a high pro-file, year-long campaign to highlight the critical role of warehousing in supply chains, the sector’s major contribution to the UK economy, the essential employment of 1m people, and the key role it is set to play in embracing solar power to achieve UK’s net zero goals. It coincides with the 80th anniversary of the Association’s inception in 1944, and includes an ambitious programme of 80 site visits across the UK by Clare, whose aim is to showcase the high tech, fast-moving working environ-ments inside UK’s warehouses.

Workshop - The logistics of constructing a new machine producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.BOOK NOW
18/10/2024 10:00:00 - 18/10/2024 15:00:00

 

When: 18 October 2024, 10:00 - 15:00
Where: Diamond House, Main gate. Harwell Science & Innovation Campus, Fermi Ave, Didcot, OX11 0DE, UK 
Speaker: Mick Conmy FCILT, Diamond-II Logistics Manager


Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 36 and attendees will be vetted by Diamond Light Source prior to confirmation.

The UK’s largest particle accelerator is undergoing a upgrade programme starting next year and running through to 2029, it is the largest ever investment in UK science. It will involve construction of a new, even brighter synchrotron machine, which is essentially a giant microscope, producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.  The light is directed, via beamlines, into laboratories where research takes place in virtually all fields of science from health to energy.


To underpin this a logistics plan is currently being designed that creates a network of local and remote storage, kitting and assembly operations from scratch. 

A project team will handle the receipt, assembly and despatch of 17,000 SKUs of largely bespoke scientific instrumentation. Much of this is both very heavy and extremely sensitive. At the same time there will be a complex and overlapping extraction and removal process. Metal recycling will also form a big part of this project. 




Diamond Light Source, along with CILT Defence Forum and Central Southern Region will run a workshop to scope the art of the possible and look for innovative movement and temporary storage solutions for this project. Defence heavy-lift and expeditionary storage experts are already engaged in this, but wider industry experts are sought to workshop ideas about the most appropriate strategy to apply to this unique endeavour. 



After an initial briefing, there will be a descriptive tour of the facility giving unprecedented access to the current particle accelerator.  The workshop will then discuss concepts and exchange ideas about how to approach the programme.  The workshop will be held in the Diamond Light Source boardroom.
