Out of Sight, Out of Mind -- Understanding Transport and Mobility Issues for People with Hidden Disabilities

An Accessibility and Inclusion Forum seminar exploring hidden disabilities and the role transport can play to promote accessibility. 

 “An invisible disability is a disability that cannot be seen, may not require a wheelchair, crutches or a blue badge”. Invisible Disabilities UK

Staff working in the transport industries – as elsewhere – are now routinely trained in meeting the needs of disabled people. However, much of the emphasis remains on those people whose disabilities are apparent – wheelchair users, people with walking difficulty, those who are blind and use a long cane or a guide dog. But, for example, fewer than 8% of disabled people use wheelchairs.

For those people whose disabilities are not apparent, but who may experience chronic pain or anxiety or any one of a wide range of other physical or psychological challenges to their independent mobility, the attitude of transport providers and the level of understanding of their needs is often very poor. And yet for many, being able to use public transport with confidence and dignity is a vital part of recovery or simply of long term daily living.

The seminar will explore the needs of people whose disabilities are “hidden” and will discuss what can and should be done to recognise them more routinely and sensitively. Policies and practice as well as training requirements will be explored. 

A draft programme is available here.

Urban logistics in the ecommerce industryBook Now
Start Date:23/01/2017 19:00:00
End Date:23/01/2017 20:30:00
Event Code:LRS0336

When: 23rd January 2017, 18:00 (for 19:00) - 20:30
Where: Central London

Speaker: David Cockrell, Sales, Innovation & Research Director, Map Mechanics

David will be talking to the group about Urban logistics in the ecommerce industry, and will be coving the following points:
• UK demographics and the impact
• Addressing the challenges
• What does the future hold?

The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004.  It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers.  The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting.  We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London.  Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards.  We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group.  The environment is very informal.  The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.

We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.

A light buffet will also be provided.

Collaboration can benefit grocery logisticsBook Now

End Date:25/01/2017 20:00:00
Event Code:LR0357

Where: London Metropolitan University, Moorgate. Electra House, 84 Moorgate, London, EC2M 6SQ - Directions
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Dr Emel Aktas CMILT, Senior Lecturer, Cranfield Supply Chain Research Centre

Emel has been working on various research logistics and transport projects. her recent work includes a project named "U-Turn" which is about logistics and transport in big cities and how collaboration among retailers and 3PL's can make future retail deliveries sustainable. She will also address some of the potential impacts of Brexit on local logistics.

Increasing urbanisation affects lives in cities, in particular in food distribution. The European food retail industry grew by 2% to $1,745 billion in 2014 with an expected increase of 12% by 2020.  Retailers can reduce transportation costs by adapting shared / collaborative logistics techniques to entertain economies of scale and better utilise their fleet.

It is possible to analytically show cost savings and reduction in environmental impact in terms of CO2 emissions, noise and pollution from collaboration and consolidation of freight.  However, for collaboration to be sustainable, consumers should receive the same or better delivery service whereas retailers should observe significant decreases in their operational costs.

About the Speaker

Emel has BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in industrial engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey. She began her career at Istanbul Technical University as a research and teaching assistant. She worked as a visiting researcher at Wayne State University, USA and as a lecturer at Dogus University, Istanbul, Turkey during her PhD studies.

She took part as a researcher in public and private funded projects on location selection, shift scheduling and transportation master plan strategy. Her refereed articles have appeared in a variety of journals including European Journal of Operational Research, Interfaces, Supply Chain Management: An International Journal, Socio-Economic Planning Sciences and Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice. Before joining Cranfield, Emel was the course director of MSc Global Supply Chain Management programme at Brunel University Business School.

Apprenticeship Levy - Changes to apprenticeship and how to get the most out of the new funding processBook Now

Ed Barrie,
Business Development Manager, Scania Training Services
Liam Fassam,
Institute Director iLIST, University of Northampton

From 6th April 2017 there will be a significant change in the funding of apprenticeships in the UK which will have a major impact on organisations that plan to employ apprentices after this date.

The new approach to funding will see all organisations operating in the UK with a salary expenditure in excess of £3million, paying a levy of 0.5% of their total pay bill to the HMRC.  This approach is a game changer in the apprenticeship funding process. Businesses who fall into this new levy funding process will need to understand the impact this will have on their apprenticeship recruitment in the future. Furthermore, it is important that organisations know how they can derive optimum value from their levy pot.

With the introduction of the Trailblazer Standards, apprenticeships are becoming more job or vocational focused than ever before, whereby the employer will have more input into the training and development the apprentice will undertake throughout their respective programme. Again this is another radical change that all organisations that are involved with apprenticeships need to be aware of in the future.

Following lunch, delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss the changes and challenges to their respective organisations with fellow delegates in a workshop environment.

At the end of this event, delegates will have a clear understanding of the changes that will be introduced in the apprenticeships from April 2017, and be able to develop a more effective and value driven strategy in their apprenticeship programmes.

All you ever wanted to know about tachographs but were afraid to askBook Now
Start Date:26/01/2017 18:30:00
End Date:26/01/2017 20:00:00
Event Code:LG0324
26th January 2017, 18:00 (for 18:30) - 20:00
Where: Edge Hill University, St Helens Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 4QP - Please not updated address from  Tachograph Analysis Consultants

Speaker: Dr Nigel Kirkwood FCILT,
Technical Director, Tachograph Analysis Consultants Ltd

Are tachographs just an Enforcement tool for Drivers’ Hours or has the digital tachograph come of age?

Are you absolutely confident your operation would pass a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA [formally VOSA]) audit?

This seminar shows how the digital tachograph is fundamental to compliance management.

Operational Information
Not just an enforcement tool. Details from the instrument can be a valuable source of operational information in support of fiscal regimes.

Fraudsters continue to try and beat the system and compromise the tachograph system (both digital and analogue). Understand how advances in technology are thwarting those efforts - helping to keep the playing field level for all operators, passenger and goods alike.

‘Been involved in an accident or incident? The tachograph can provide a wealth of critical information. Do you know what this information is and how to get to it before it is lost?

All You Ever Wanted To Know Though Were Afraid To Ask
Exploring and exploding some common myths about the instrument itself, this seminar is a must for anyone wanting to know more about the instrument, how it works and how its information can add real value to the operation.

A light buffet will also be provided.

Speaker: Stewart McDonald MP 

Stewart McDonald was elected SNP MP for Glasgow South in May 2015.  He is the only MP in Scotland to sit as a member on the Transport Select Committee.  He has written to the Secretary of State for Transport following the Volkswagen emissions scandal, and asked the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to assess the effect on air quality after it was revealed that new diesel cars' emissions were far higher on the road than in lab tests.  He has also asked the Transport Secretary what recent assessment has been made of potential safety risks posed by drones to civil aviation and large public gatherings, and what the government's response is to calls for all but the lowest power laser pens to be banned.  He has sought assurances that the Government will extend the HS2 line to Scotland.

A light buffet will also be provided.
