Will Whitehorn, director of Stagecoach Group and chairman of Transport Systems Catapult, will become the next president of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) in the UK. Whitehorn will begin the one-year presidency on 20th May, when existing president Beverley Bell passes the honour.
“It is a great honour to have been appointed President of CILT in the UK,” said Whitehorn. “I am thrilled to represent the profession at such a momentous period of technological change that is currently sweeping through every aspect of our activities.
“We are on a rapid curve towards artificial intelligence and autonomous systems transforming the future of transport and logistics; this change will require an increasing emphasis on new skills and qualifications.”
