Travel Plan Together, a new and innovative service from The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), is designed to enable user organisations to better plan for the travel needs of their personnel, together with their inward delivery and external distribution systems, in order to increase safety and efficiency, save money and improve employee relations.
The service provides expert guidance delivered by experienced transport planning professionals, which will address workplace transport issues through the introduction of a package of measures looking at all travel and transport pertaining to the organisation, its location and its staff.
The service is tailored to produce customised advice and guidance relating to staff commuting plans, as well as on-site operation of company or visiting delivery vehicles, resulting in reduced transport fuel costs; reduced carbon emissions; removal of the need for off-site parking; accelerated planning consent; and improved staff and customer experience. Enhanced site accessibility for alternative modes of travel ultimately contributes to improved corporate responsibility and demonstration of an organisation’s social responsibility.
The Travel Plan Together service provides a flexible means of benefitting both small and large employers, housing and commercial property developers, and local authorities as well as organisations specialising in freight, logistics and fleet operations.
CILT Chief Executive Steve Agg said: ‘The introduction of Travel Plan Together is very timely, coming as it does in Olympic year. The London Games, and the need for short-term alternative operations as a consequence of traffic and timing restrictions, have already led to all types of organisations carefully considering both the travel needs of their staff and every aspect of their inward and outbound transport arrangements, both during and subsequent to the event.
‘The scheme offers fresh thinking, combined with independent advice from seasoned professionals, together with the obvious benefits resulting from complementary actions to cut costs and go green. Adoption of new policies in this area can only result in both economic and operational benefits to users.’
