With legislation constantly being updated, perhaps this is not as simple a question as it first seems. Drivers’ Hours for passenger and goods operations were updated recently and the tachograph that has seen an update too. What of compliance? Modern tachographs make driver and vehicle operational details readily accessible for use in compliance systems. Are those valuable details being put to maximum use and is that rich seam of information being exploited to the full. To find out the answer to these questions you must join us by booking now.

The freight and logistics industry have often been considered a challenging industry to engage with, particularly because of the large numbers of smaller companies and the wide geographic and sectorial areas they cover. However, in recently years we have seen an increase in industry engagement activity from Highways England, National Infrastructure Commission and numerous Freight Studies at Sub-national transport bodies all undertaking workshops and more recently webinars to understand industry requirements. Whether it be because of more activity or because of the amount of online meetings, there has been a decline in industry attendance at these sessions in what could be termed “engagement fatigue”. This webinar explores some of the pitfalls of industry engagement and how we can both participate better and where we are responsible for organising engagement activities – manage to get a better-quality outcome.
When: 01 March 2021, 19:30 - 20:30Where: Zoom WebinarSpeaker:
Harald Hamley - Teaching Fellow at University of Portsmouth, FCILT, ex Supply Chain Director & former CILT Regional Officer CSR.
Harald will talk about the hard-won lessons from his 30 years as a Logistician. He’ll draw on real examples, such as the challenge of improving the export service to Japan and conducting a network study to determine the optimum European warehouse network. This talk will be of most interest to those in the earlier stages of their career. Logistics isn’t rocket science; Harald believes one can go far by gathering the right data, using common sense and keeping it simple.
Harald has held senior management positions in global corporations and led multicultural teams. As European Supply Chain Manager he set up the processes for a billion Euro joint venture and introduced a new supply chain culture. Earlier in his career he designed logistics systems, managed production, planning teams and customer services. Harald has also implemented ERP/SAP in ten European countries, gaining a thorough understanding of sales, service, purchasing and finance.
Harald is now trying to pass on his hard won SCM and Operations experience to students at Portsmouth Business School. In his spare time, he chairs the CILT Awards Scheme.
The Thames Valley Group are always keen to enjoy a relaxed informal environment in their events but unfortunately cannot move to the pub after the presentation as normal. Participants are therefore encouraged to bring the beverage of their choice to the webinar.

When: 10 March 2021, 19:30 - 21:00Where: Zoom WebinarSpeaker: John Carr FCILT – CILT Board Member, Director ATCO & BRTuk
Where have all the buses gone? Opportunities for shared mobility in town and country”?John recalls that his awareness of rural transport problems was first awakened in the 1960s when the Jack Committee reported to Parliament on rural bus services as railway closures following Dr Beeching’s “Reshaping” report accelerated. Little did he know then that rural transport issues were to be a recurrent theme in the next 60 years despite a career spent largely in conurbation transport planning and management. Milestones were the Rutex (Rural Transport Experiments) of the 1970s, deregulation of bus and coach services after 1981 (yes, 1981!), the Settle-Carlisle railway closure proposals, the rise and fall of postbuses and the attractions of community transport as a panacea.Amid the concern and deepening resignation of rural communities as their services dwindled, not only transport but others such as shops, post offices and surgeries, self-help emerged in community interest companies alongside exploration of how to apply information and communication technologies as the age of “there’s an app for that” exploded. John traces how initiatives have come and gone, suggests that car-sized problems need car-sized solutions, describes several promising technological developments and concludes that partnership is essential to build sustainable rural transport services.Following John’s presentation there will be the opportunity for discussion introduced by reactions from Cathy Knight, Commercial Sector Service Development Manager, North Yorkshire County Council, England’s largest county, and Martin Gilbert, Managing Director, Go North East and East Yorkshire Motor Services, formerly Chief Executive of Reading Buses.Cost: Member: Free Non-Member: £5.00 Including VAT
