The British-based Institute of Logistics and Transport's Heathrow, England branch is nearly halfway through its winter 1999 to 2000 programme of meetings, workshops and visits. A talk was given by Jolyon Drury on the topic of air cargo at the West Thames College in Isleworth, England which runs logistics courses for the Institute's qualifications. An annual workshop on sustainable transport was participated in by over 65 persons. Four speakers gave talks on topics related to Heathrow airport and its environs. The following event was one in which a group of 25 members sat down to play the Lego Supply-Chain Game.
