UK – Transport and logistics is not only a useful barometer for the economics of a country but also a sector that tends to take the lead in new technology and communications. It was the industry which pioneered the use of fax machines over telex in the 1970’s and now, with the rapid advent of social media, it is exploiting this in all its forms, as demonstrated this month when the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK (CILT) Chairman takes to a live Q&A on Twitter later this month.

The Institute’s Chairman, Professor Richard Wilding OBE, will be answering questions live on Twitter on Thursday 21st April for European Supply Chain Day and will give individuals a unique opportunity to chat with one of the industry’s leading professionals. Richard is inviting everyone to ask him questions and queries about the industry and is keen to ensure that young professionals and students grasp this chance to interact and engage with such a well-respected figure in the industry.

Twitter users are encouraged to tweet Richard Wilding about the latest industry developments, challenges and opportunities for the industry, the omni-channel revolution, access to careers in logistics and other supply chain or logistics based questions and queries. Commenting on the announcement Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive, CILT, said:

“This is an exciting opportunity for all logistics and transport professionals to connect with Professor Richard Wilding and have the chance to ask him questions about the industry and his unique experience. A live Q+A is an ideal platform for professionals from across the globe to reach out to Professor Richard Wilding and we look forward to sharing the questions and answers with you.”

Twitter users are encouraged to tweet directly to Richard using @SupplyChainProf and to join in with the day’s events by using hashtag #supplychainday.
