Joining up logistics thinking

Freight Best Practice and Skills for Logistics have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which agrees to a strategic plan for future joint working.

The document outlines a formal business relationship, which the organisations hope will lead to a better working relationship between them.

The agreement encourages sharing of distribution channels resulting in Freight Best Practice publications being used in the proposed Skills for Logistics academies.

 The document also sets out plans for joint event attendance and an annual joint-held event which will help promote the objectives of both organisations.

Jonathan James, Freight Best Practice programme director said: “The signing of this document will pave the way for more joined up thinking which can only benefit each organisation.”

Dr Mick Jackson, chief executive at Skills for Logistics, said: “Our two organisations have worked with each other in the past to promote best practice in developing the skills of the workforce and the MOU will help us to do more of this in the future.”
