PAS1.1 Passenger Movement Principles



Digital Innovation of Rail Freight on Decarbonisation - NEW DATEBook Now

Speaker: Barrie Louw

During the previous 5 years the Logistics Institute at the University of Hull has worked on several projects relating to the coordination and optimisation of international and national multimodal freight routes and logistics. In the world of supply chain disruption and increasing pressure to deliver on decarbonisation targets, the traditional approaches to freight movement need to be constantly re-evaluated and adapted. What are the insights that can be gained from the projects and research conducted by the Institute? Rail freight is one of the keys to a carbon neutral future for supply chains. We will have a look at some of the opportunities and challenges that this industry face and the work done by the Institute to provide the data to measure the positive impact that rail freight presents.
 
Barrie Louw heads the Logistics Institute. Barrie has more than 25 years’ experience working in supply chains. He implemented integrated business systems, led improvement projects and managed multi-national supply chains, before joining the Logistics Institute 2017. He has worked in many industries including agriculture, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and he led supply planning for Heineken and Diageo in the Southern African market during a transformational period. He managed the developed of several innovative logistics software solutions and concepts at the Institute.

A New Strategic Transport Plan for the MidlandsBook Now
Start Date:29/06/2022 17:00:00
End Date:29/06/2022 18:00:00
Event Code:WMR0336
Description:

 

When: 29 June 2022, 17:00 - 18:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers: 

  • Steve Rothwell, Strategy Refresh Manager, Midlands Connect
  • Andy Clark, Senior Rail Programme Manager, Midlands Connect

Please join this evening presentation with Steve Rothwell and Andy Clark to hear more about Midlands Connect’s recently published Strategic Transport Plan.

Steve, Midlands Connect’s Strategy Refresh Manager, has played a key role in developing the Strategic Transport Plan, and will talk through the plan itself and also some of the technical work that has underpinned it.

Midlands Connect is the Sub National Transport Body for the Midlands, which researches, develops and progresses transport projects that will benefit the region, its people and its businesses. In an ever-changing world, the Midlands Connect priorities remain the same - to create a fairer, greener and stronger Midlands.

The world is a very different place since Midlands Connect published its regional transport strategy in 2017. Our country has undergone profound changes as we recover from the social and economic effects of Covid-19, navigate business and trade following our exit from the European Union and address the global climate emergency.

The Strategic Transport Plan addresses these challenges, recommending transport projects that can create a more productive, prosperous and sustainable Midlands.

Andy, a Senior Rail Programme Manager, will then provide detail on Midlands Engine Rail, which is an ambitious portfolio of rail schemes, including Midlands Rail Hub. Encouraging more people to use the rail network is an essential step in reducing transport-related carbon emissions. The Midlands Engine Rail programme includes a series of improvements to boost rail connectivity across the Midlands. The interventions we’re suggesting include: making journeys faster, allowing trains to run more frequently and creating new connections that don’t currently exist (for example, new services linking Coventry with Leicester).

Following Steve and Andy’s presentation, there will be plenty of time for questions.

Zero emission technology is rapidly advancing as the UK looks to decarbonise. There are various options available and each one can be applied to different scenarios. Each bus, coach and freight operator will have different circumstances, with local and longer distance routes, and a range of depot sites and infrastructure to support their operations. 


Key speakers from the electric, hydrogen and fuel cell industries will give us a detailed insight into how each technology is developing and how it can be deployed effectively and efficiently in both the road freight and bus and coach industries over the coming months and years.
