Leading logistics organisation goes the extra mile

A leading organisation for one of D2N2’s eight key sectors is currently undertaking a survey to understand the issues of the ‘last mile’ between traditional high street shopping and home delivery.

The Institute of Couriers (IoC) is a member organisation which seeks to encourage knowledge sharing and development of courier skills across the logistics industry. It keeps its members up to date with the latest industry information and regularly attends events to help promote the good work within the Transport and Logistics Sector.

D2N2 – the Local Enterprise Partnership for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, identified logistics as a key driver of economic growth within the area, with over 28,000 employees and a range of key assets across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Carl Lomas, the IoC Chair, also chairs the D2N2 logistics sector group.

The IoC has been running a survey to attempt to receive feedback about the growing shift from high street to online shopping. It recently attended the Multi Modal NEC Trade Show and had a substantial uptake to the survey there.

Students from Manchester Metropolitan University surveyed attendees from the courier, road, rail and air industries at the NEC Trade Show. The results of which are now being collated and analysed by the university.

The survey is still open for responses, to take it, visit
