NEC Birmingham venue for all things logistics. Institute of Couriers talk delivery reliability as they extend their four-year longitudinal study to understand the evolving and exploding numbers of e-retail final mile.

IOC will ask logisticians the questions beyond speed, will the client be in to receive the express package ?, what time and how tight is the delivery window to achieve reliability and success ?

Both Universities of Derby and MMU at the heart of crunching the data to judge the sustainability of the exploding numbers.

Day 1

Keynote from former Traffic Commissioner Beverley Bell - Attracting Talent, “it’s a profession”

Former Traffic Commissioner, Beverley Bell kicked off the Multimodal seminars with a lively look at the challenge of attracting new talent into the logistics profession. "It’s a profession not ‘just an industry'" she stressed.

Steve Granite from Abbey Logistics shared his own remarkable journey from apprentice to MD and talked about his visits to schools as part of Think Logistics. Experiences from those in the room showed that ‘logistics’ is still seen as ‘trucks and sheds’ and not a career for the brightest and best – which we all know it is; with the advent of ‘big data’ as the driving force in manufacturing and retailing.

The session ended with a wake-up call to the sector to make use of the apprenticeship levy money being taken from the larger companies – current data shows that government has taken £85m from the sector and yet only £4m has been spent on apprenticeships.
