Logistics Week, organised by the Centre for Supply Chain Improvement, is one of a number of ways the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) support the logistics sector.

The Logistics sector is a vital support for UK industry and the East Midlands is its heartland. Its impact is felt throughout the business world and keeping abreast of the latest developments, thinking and learning is vital for every business.
