Joined up Journeys - Integration and Interchange: making travel workable for disabled and older peopleBook Now
Start Date:10/04/2018 10:30:00
End Date:10/04/2018 15:30:00
Event Code:AIF0308
Description:

When: Tuesday 10th April from 10:30 - 15:30 hrs
Where: The Accessible Transport Group, 80 Park Road, Aston, Birmingham B6 5PL


Confirmed Speakers:

  • Kevin Richardson FCILT, Chief Executive, The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport

  • Jim Morey, Access Consultant, Le Chat Noir Ltd.

The concept of transport chains makes clear that, where any link in the journey chain is missing or broken, it can prevent a person from travelling.

Changing between modes or making any kind of travel connection can be stressful and daunting for all of us. For many disabled and older people, it is often simply impossible because of lack of appropriate infrastructure and support, combined with the unreliability of services.

Planning and good practice in areas as diverse as timetabling, signage, ticketing, physical infrastructure and co-operation between providers, all play a vital part in joining the chain and making journeys achievable. As do first mile/last mile considerations, real time information, communication between services, sheltered travel hubs and buddying services.

This one-day seminar will explore the concerns and difficulties faced by disabled and older people and will look at practical solutions and examples of good practice to achieve joined up journeys.

A draft of the programme is available here.

Last year's seminar was oversubscribed. Delegates are therefore advised to book early!

Logistics Workers, Labour Shortages, and Automation in a Post Brexit WorldBook Now
Start Date:17/04/2018 10:30:00
End Date:17/04/2018 15:00:00
Event Code:COR0354
Description:When: Tuesday 17th April 2018, 10:00 (for 10:30) - 15:00
Where: Jaguar Land Rover Experience Solihull, Block 66, Lode Lane, Solihull, West Midlands, B92 8NW

Theme: Is automation a solution to post-Brexit Britain’s most pressing supply chain challenges?

No matter where you stand on Brexit, it’s likely to have a big impact on UK supply chains, adding to the challenges that logistics service providers and cargo owners are already faced with: from driver shortages and congestion, to rising costs and changes in consumer demand.

Join CILT and its members at the Jaguar Land Rover Experience Centre for a roundtable discussion, sponsored by DP World London Gateway and chaired by CILT’s Kevin Richardson. Discuss the challenges facing the logistics and transportation industry; the challenges of now and the potential challenges of the future – some of which may be exacerbated by Brexit. Are there solutions? Should providers collaborate more? Could the introduction of more automation be one potential solution? Are there solutions which remove the need for so many drivers and trucks?

The event will be chaired by Kevin Richardson, CEO of CILT who joined the Institute from XPO Logistics, formerly Norbert Dentressangle, where he held the role of European Development Director for four years. Prior to that Kevin spent 20 years at TDG Plc progressing from Implementation Director to Strategic Development Director.

An experienced senior logistics executive with over 35 years’ experience in the sector, Kevin has extensive knowledge in operational and project management across Europe and has been a member of the Institute for 28 years.

Agenda:
10am: Arrive at venue
10:30am – 12 noon: Roundtable discussion

The Internet of Supply Chains - DigitalisationBook Now

When: Thursday 26 April 2018, 09:30 (for 10:00) - 16:00
Where: The Thistle Hotel, Bath Road, Longford, Heathrow UB7 0EQ

Digitalisation and Collaboration is more prevalent, especially in Supply Chain Management, than anywhere else. With globalisation, mergers and aquisitions, 4PL contracts, outsourced suppliers, understandably the strain on communications and IT is immense. This event is aimed at supply chain-logistic managers, directors and interested parties who have great systems, but still work with spreadsheets, phone calls and emails as cross border transactions become more complex. Also of course, interested parties who want to understand how Digitalisation and Collaboration has impacted supply chains. Register now if you wish to attend and hear first hand from various experts who have embraced and delivered differing solutions and practices in the digital world. See the review from last years event.

"This is one of the best one day conferences I have filmed at in a long while. Speakers were excellent. Q/A was so healthy and focussed that it caused the event to overrun. If you missed it then don't make the same mistake when they run the next one."

Speaker: Mark Hughes, Train Maintenance Centre Manager - Hitachi Rail europe

In 2007 Hitachi opened a new £60m site in Ashford to maintain the fleet of high speed 'Javelin' trains. Since then over 128 long term jobs have been created and there has been significant support for the local supply chain. The Javelin trains began testing in the region shortly after the Ashford TMC opened. They then entered passenger service in 2009, six months ahead of schedule. The fleet of 29 trains have been a huge success and rose to prominence in the public's imagination during the 2012 London Olympics, where they catered for 2.4m passenger journeys. Apart from the sporting action, they became one of the defining images of the games. Hitachi built the fleet using Japanese Bullet Train technology, making them aerodynamic and light. Running at speeds of up to 140 mph they are the fastest trains on the UK's domestic network.          

HRE have kindly agreed to open their doors to the CILT.

Speaker: Andrew Parrott

Chris Tarrant's Extreme Rail Journeys revealed how the railways of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia were fought over by the Germans and Russians, with frequent regauging of the networks. Andrew Parrott knows the Baltic States well from service there in his Army days, and will take their story from Imperial Russia through the interwar republics to independence, when rail's decline gave way to eventual recovery symbolised by the building of a standard-gauge railway which is progressing through Lithuania.

A light buffet will be provided.
