Hon Fellows, Sir Peter Hendy and Vice Chancellor, Prof Liz Barnes gave keynote speeches; road, compliance and qualifications issues on the agenda before John Holland-Kaye talked freight at Heathrow airport.

Viscount Falkland President IoC. 

The Institute has become a family of the courier sector; a truly expanding and evolving sector. I returned again to Guildhall last year to see the IoC motorcycle courier bike branded for trade in the City of London. Such events showcase the nature of fellows' interaction between City, ceremonial and operational delivery. It has been a great pleasure to see the Institute evolve and to do so in the most professional manner.


Carl Lomas MBE Chairman IoC,

This evening is about individuals; those who have stepped forward to be recognised as individual fellows of the institute. With common goal for best practice and excellence in developing and promoting the sector of final mile, express delivery and courier.
