Speaker: Jonathan Pittam, Mental Health Educator

HGV driving and poor mental health is a puzzle that remains unsolved.  Resulting in costs to business in terms of absence and driver turnover, as well as reputational costs, where accidents occur

During this interactive webinar, we'll be considering just what it is about the role of an HGV driver that is leading to way above average rates of mental health issues;

We'll be focusing on 3 key areas that all organisations need to be aware of, namely;  

  • The conditions of work on the road 
  • Impacts of predominantly male profession, and the reluctance to discuss. 
  • How do we talk about mental health as a society more widely

We will be exploring potential solutions for you to implement in your organisation.

When: Wednesday 13th October, 16:00 - 18:00
Where: Zoom webinar


COP26 comes at a critical time in the challenge of halting dangerous climate change. The devastation from severe floods and wildfires, coupled with extreme heat with record breaking temperatures in many parts of the world, bring into sharp focus the urgent need to take action. With this as a backdrop there is much that needs to be achieved in the discussions at COP26 to drive real action that creates positive change. As an industry we have a huge role to play and we have brought together a number of fantastic speakers who will give a transport perspective covering the themes being discussed at COP26.

The session will start with a key note speaker, Martin Baxter, Director of Policy and External Affairs and deputy CEO of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, following on with experts discussing; Achieving Net Zero, Adapting to protect communities and natural habitats, Mobilising finance to support sustainability and Working together to deliver targets.

We aim to have time to encourage discussion, and we’d like you to consider for debate: what one thing would you like to say to the decision makers at COP26?

Keynote speaker:
Martin Baxter, IEMA. Martin will provide an overview of the aims and objectives of COP26 generally and what the UK aims to get out of it and his hopes for the agreements made.  

Speakers:
Kevin Richardson, Chief Exec, CILT(UK)
Working together to deliver targets 
Kevin will discuss the role of CILT (and professional bodies generally) to promote collaboration – between people, organisations, sectors and governments

Paul Le Blond, Chair, CILT(UK) Aviation Policy Group
Achieving Net Zero
In February 2021, CILT published a Year End report summarizing our activity to date. Our conclusions and views have used extensively in consultation responses, evidence to Parliamentary committees and other published papers. A new set of updates is in preparation for publication in the run up to COP26 and Paul will present some of the key updates.

Kevin McPherson, Asset Management Consultant, TRL
Adapting to protect communities and natural habitats
Kevin will discuss climate risk assessments and climate adaptation in the logistics context, exploring how future scenarios may impact UK roads and what that may mean for logistics companies.

Dr Nishatabbas Rehmatulla, Senior Research Fellow, UCL Energy Institute
Mobilising finance to support sustainability
Nish will talk about Green Finance, and how financiers integrate climate mitigation and climate resilience into their decision making process when funding logistics capital investments

What is SMART in Logistics – The impact of digital technologies on Warehousing SystemsBook Now

Speaker: Martin Brickell Operations Director Accenture UK, Chair CILT Warehousing Technology Forum



This lecture is part of a series run by the South West Region of CILT in conjunction with Bath University School of Management looking at how digital technologies are transforming the world of logistics.

In this session Martin Brickell, Chair of the CILT Warehousing Technology Forum, will introduce a series of case studies to illustrate how Digital Technology and SMART Logistics are transforming the way warehouses are being managed. Critically, Martin will consider if 3PLs are best placed to drive digital change or will be ‘disrupted’ by the new business models being introduced. The session will be moderated by the Dr Vaggelis Giannikas, Director of the Centre for Smart Warehousing and Logistics Systems at Bath University School of Management.

Martin Brickell on Warehousing Technology:
“During the last few years, the role of the warehouse has radically changed to meet increasing demands of more responsive supply chains. The warehouse has taken on the role of manufacturing as a mass customisation centre and retailing where it supplies direct to the end-user. Customer demand has changed significantly which has impacted all operational areas, inventory carrying costs have been recognised as a key financial measure and the cost of capital employed in a warehouse impacts the bottom line along with speed of service now being a major contributor to a business’s success.”

Approaches to zero carbon fashionBook Now
Start Date:19/10/2021 17:00:00
End Date:19/10/2021 18:00:00
Event Code:WNYG0339
Description:

When: 19 October 2021, 17:00 - 18:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Dr Pammi Sinha, Associate Professor, Fashion Management School of Design, University of Leeds

The first principle of a circular economic approach is to design out waste and pollution. The sheer volume of production and consumption of fashion/textiles, with its inevitable waste, has seen global companies, government funded consortia and private entrepreneurs/inventors vying to be the first in developing a truly circular fashion and textiles industry through recycling of fibres, particularly from waste.

It can be argued, however, that recycling inadvertently supports systems that initially enabled current climate and environmental problems. Moreover, while recycling does lead to some savings in energy and resources, further energy and resources are needed to recycle, making zero carbon emissions even more distant. Moreover, according to the UN, the fashion industry emits 10% of all industry carbon emissions and contribute to global landfills between 2-6% volume of textiles... It’s imperative we work towards dematerializing to achieve net zero. The less we do with the fabric, the more we conserve of the energy initially expended.

In this seminar I will provide an overview of industry approaches currently being undertaken to lower the environmental impact of fashion on the road to net zero. Presenting the findings from two recent projects focused on postconsumer textiles waste, (Leeds and Colombo, Sri Lanka), I will argue for a greater understanding of waste textiles, from a systems perspective and a supply chain approach.

Brexit: What January full border controls on EU imports really meansBook Now
Start Date:28/10/2021 17:00:00
End Date:28/10/2021 18:45:00
Event Code:FTF0307
Description:

When: 28 October 2021, 17:00 - 18:45
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers:

  • Paul Kelly – Host
  • Susan Morley MBA, DMS, FCILT, FIFP(grad), LGSM - Speaker:
    Susan will outline the changes that will impact EU/UK cross-border trade and in particular the delayed import controls. Susan will also consider potential pitfalls and how these might be avoided.
  • TBC – A forwarder, haulier and shipper will join Susan on a panel for a Q&A session, with questions specific to their situations.

This event will appeal to anyone operating in, affected by, or interested in cross border EU trade. Including customs brokers, forwarders, shippers, hauliers, logistics professionals, academics and students and is joint with the CILT(UK) London Region

Have forwarders and brokers done enough, to prepare to support them, or are UK importers of European goods “sleepwalking” into disaster, as the UK’s six-month moratorium on customs declarations comes to an end on the 1st January 2022.

HMRC’s six-month delay on declarations for imported goods from 1st January aimed to reduce strain on the system and provide importers sufficient time to adjust to post-Brexit procedures, but many are already struggling to cope with the easements already in place and, as many importers are new to the customs environment they may not realise their agent used the delayed declaration scheme and they will have failed to retain sufficient records or copies of E2/C88s, providing proof of authorisation to import or export.

This event will review the import controls that will apply to import from the EU and what you need to do to prepare – as a carrier, forwarder, shipper or port operator – and your options for simplifying and/or delegating compliance responsibilities.

The annual supply chain risk event is usually a join event with the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply and is consistently well supported by both institutes’ members, attracting a wide range of practitioner and academic speakers, who have been educating, informing and entertaining delegates for 11 years.

The 12th anniversary of this unique event, promises to be just as rewarding for delegates, with speakers exploring the development of supply chains risks and the actions taken to address the increasing threat of criminalisation and theft. This event will be particularly interesting to delegates with strategic responsibility and for those seeking the latest insights in understanding and addressing opportunities and threats.

The presentation and discussion phase will be followed by an informal drinks reception, to allow delegates the opportunity to network and meet the speakers.

From an operations background, with some of the biggest names in the UK haulage industry, Mike joined Thomas Miller in 2010 to oversee loss prevention and risk management for The TT Club. In addition to supporting the mutual insurers members, Mike works alongside a host of professional institutes, trade associations, industry bodies and NGO’s to identify and promote best practice in reducing risk in the supply chain. Mike will talk about the Supply Chain Risk Industry Partnership and how it promotes best practice. He will also consider trends in supply chain risk for UK, European, and Global supply chains.

Michael Dawber is an intelligence officers in the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service, better known as NaVCIS. Mike’s team investigate criminal gangs threatening the haulage industry, sharing intelligence with law-enforcement agencies and the international freight industry. He will outline NaVCIS’ origins and how they partner with industry to prevent crime, pursue criminal gangs and protect supply chains.
