April 2021
A Freight & Logistics Decarbonisation Strategy for the South WestBook Now

Description:




Formally: Railfreight: The Key to Decarbonising Trunk Haul Logistics

When:
21 April 2021, 18:00 - 19:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Julian Worth, Chair of CILT Rail Freight Forum and former Managing Director of Transrail Freight

This lecture is part of a series run by CILT in conjunction with Plymouth University Business School.

Julian Worth will suggest that the South West is ideally placed to take advantage of a new model of logistics and propose a Freight Decarbonisation Strategy for the region. As the only mode with a proven ability to move freight over long distances in a zero-carbon manner, using renewable or nuclear energy supplied through overhead wires, rail can assume a much larger share of trunking. Allied to the use of short and medium range battery trucks for local and regional distribution, this offers the prospect of a fully decarbonised supply chain. In advance of rail electrification, modal switch to diesel-hauled rail reduces carbon emissions by around two thirds and slows the rate at which the carbon 'budget' is consumed.

Open Debate: The National Bus StrategyBook Now
Start Date:22/04/2021 18:00:00
End Date:22/04/2021 19:00:00
Event Code:LR0403
Description:


When: 22 April 2021, 18:00 - 19:15
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Hosted by Austin Birks, Chair of Busmark and of the Bus & Coach Forum with 6 5 minute presentations from different stakeholder groups

CILT welcome the Government’s initiative in publishing Buses Back Better, the first comprehensive statement of bus strategy for decades. Possibly the last was “Workhorse to Thoroughbred” in 1999. Its emphasis on partnership is pleasing. A hidden benefit of Covid may have been establishing or reinforcing close authority and operator working relationships throughout England. A Local Authority Centre of Excellence for disseminating the skills required to provide the infrastructure and administration for inclusive mobility networks is a superb proposal.
Recognition of the importance of faster bus journeys through bus priority is long overdue and the use of bus design, information and payment technologies facilitated by Bus Open Data is timely. This will bring all passengers faster, more comfortable journeys with flexible fares and the information to plan them and monitor progress.
But, although the strategy is strong on principles, it has weaknesses in a number of delivery areas, for example:

  • Levelling up accessibility for all;
  • Changing the car-oriented mindset;
  • Consequences of Austerity: loss of services and local authority skills and capacity;
  • The Local Authority Centre of Excellence;
  • Timescales, Guidance and Legislative Capacity;
  • Resourcing the Strategy;
  • The longer term.

Panellists will drill down into Buses Back Better and give their perspectives on key issues before the virtual floor is opened to members of the audience.

Speakers:

  • Jamie Marshall - Senior Cargo Sales Executive
  • Tony Shally - Managing Director

Global, European and domestic supply chains, continue to be challenged by the impacts of the COVID pandemic and Brexit, and while we hope that the vaccination roll-out will lead to a return to some sort normality, it looks like last years’ supply chain challenges will remain with us for some time.

So, with air, sea and road suffering from continuing operations, capacity and reliability issues, how will the carriers rise to the future challenges of consistency in service they deliver.

Future-proof your supply chain knowledge by joining this Zoom event, to hear speakers from Emirates, Hapag Lloyd and Espace outline their view of the challenges that face air, sea and road freight today and why we might be optimistic about tomorrow.

COVID-19 has posed profound challenges to almost every sector in our economy. Sup
ply chains have become even more integral to the way that we deliver products and services and the sector has had to adapt quickly to ensure that customer needs are met. This has resulted in a strong focus on resilience to ensure processes run smoothly – whatever the challenges. However, how do we balance that alongside sustainability targets which continue to be critical to both businesses, governments and all our futures?


This Open University webinar, in association with Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), brings together academics and transport and logistics professionals to discuss this delicate balance to help you stabilise competing demands and manage resilient and sustainable operations, with a mix of academic theory and practitioners discussing how it works in practice.
