Cycle Logistics: Going the Last Mile with Last MileBook Now
Start Date:27/07/2016 19:00:00
End Date:27/07/2016 20:30:00
Event Code:WNYG0319
 Wednesday, 27 July 2016, 18:00 (for 19:00) - 20:30 
Where: Baht'ap, City Square, 11 Mill Hill, Leeds, LS1 5DQ

Speaker: Ian Brocklebank, Last Mile Leeds

The Last Mile of deliveries can be complex and expensive in dense city centres - heavy traffic and loading restrictions on key retail and business streets mean deliveries often have to be retimed, and parcel delivery can be complex.  A new approach is providing for more effective door to door delivery in the centre of cities where lorries, and sometimes other motorised vehicles cannot go - delivery by bike.

Last Mile deliver for a number organisations, including DHL, in Central and Inner City Leeds and Manchester, and are also developing a Consolidation Centre offer.

Last Mile will be demonstrating their cargo bikes, which include models which are able to deliver Europallets, and showing how cycle delivery is a serious and competitive solution for last mile deliveries in city centres, with the additional advantage of being zero emission.

This is a joint event between CILT(UK) and Green Drinks Leeds, a networking event for people working or interested in environmental issues and one of over 500 such events in 66 countries.

The demonstration will take place on City Square in Central Leeds (in front of the rail station), with registration, networking and discussion at Green Drinks Leeds' usual venue of Baht’ap round the corner on Mill Hill.

Roundtable Invitation - Unlock the hidden savings in your workforce - Fully booked!Book Now
Start Date:18/08/2016 10:30:00
End Date:18/08/2016 13:30:00
Event Code:COR0328
Thursday, 18 August 2016, 10:00 (for 10:30) - 13:30
Where: National Motorcycle Museum, National Conference Centre, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, West Midlands, B92 0EJ

Speaker: Steve Ainsley, Managing Director, Imperago

How much additional revenue would you need to add 10% onto your bottom line?

Optimising your workforce shift patterns can achieve the same goal without the associated risk almost immediately, but many organisations simply lack the knowledge, tools and methodology to unlock these hidden savings.

CILT and Imperago invite you to join us for a roundtable event to hear how industry veteran Steve Ainsley, MD of Imperago, has worked with similar organisations to yours to achieve impressive savings, while improving staff morale and keeping the unions happy.

You will learn exactly how this was achieved as Steve will be quoting real life examples such as:

•     One company saved £400k across 100 employees by optimising working patterns, reducing the requirement for overtime.
•     Another organisation reduced its workforce costs by 12% and then reduced absence by a further 1%. This equated to several £millions in new contracts.
•     The missing first step to optimising your workforce – and the tools to use
•     How small reductions in absence make a big impact on profits
•     Balancing working patterns to avoid over staffing at the same time as dramatically reducing overtime
•     Avoiding staff unrest and dealing with unions
•     Improving staff engagement and morale, while being more efficient

Join us on 18 August, at the National Motorcycle Museum to find out more.

Hosted at the National Motorcycle Museum, the discussions conclude with a networking buffet lunch.

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted.

Please note this event is now fully booked! If you would like to be placed on the reserve list, please contact Membership Services, Tel: 01536 740104 or email: quoting the event code: COR0328.

Modelling for Non-Modellers, GlasgowBook Now

End Date:31/08/2016 09:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0428

The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from “simple” equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.
