Sec of State for Transport Chris Grayling delivers the keynote,

Transport makes a difference to our country.

Transport is about People.

 

The Carmen Livery and Awards night Transport Banquet filled Mansion House with a UK-wide transport showcase - multi-modal; road, rail air and sea.

Sec of State Chris Grayling spoke of ‘Transport makes a difference to our country.

Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Charles Bowman was in attendance to greet guests with the Master Carmen.

The Lord Mayor focused on walking as the key mode to cross the streets of the City of London. He spoke on the impact of Cross Rail, the culture mile it would generate and the new location for the Museum of London for its focus.

A host of Institute of Couriers fellows were at the table to talk congestion, clean air and next generation workforce.

New IOC Vice President, John Hayes raced from a late vote in the commons to be at the table with the IOC.

New fellows included Clipper boss Tony Mannix and new services to industry winner Kate Lester, Diamond Logistics. Sam Clarke spoke clean air final mile as chair of the electric vehicle group. Colonel Andy Moffatt was on hand as boss of British forces post office to announce hosting the panel of judges for the 2018 National Courier Awards. Three months and two peaks into 2018 fellows talked numbers and client choice in the delivery chain of express, fresh from Mother's Day Sunday deliveries.

Sec of State for Transport spoke passionately about the transport sector, smiling and opening with  ‘I am a little bit of a transport geek.’ He spoke historic transport milestones in the UK, ‘First jet engine, Jaguar, Mini and Land Rover. Canals transformed transport in our country and I am an avid rail user’. Moving to future ‘Driverless cars will transform lives and we will seem them in the next four years, motoring will never be the same again.

John Ratcliffe took the lifetime achievement award, famous for the tail-lifts we see on almost every truck today.
