Opening the table for the IOC Heads of industry was Richard Scarlett, returning with a retail vision from John Lewis on final mile.

Tracey Worth chaired a line-by-line edit discussion of the pledge which will lead to a future code of practice.

The pledge remains two pages in length, sitting in five modules; the last polishing is set for the fellows-only afternoon round table on Oct 9th that will precede the National Courier Awards. We bring you an extract of the module titled 'People, workforce and employment status'.
