This article focuses policies on transportation policies in Great Britain, as of April 2002, and its implications for the Institute of Logistics and Transport. The author believes that there are important and fundamental contributions to a strategic solution which will deal with transportation policy problems. At the institute's annual Sir Robert Reid Lecture in February 2002, members had the benefit of Richard Bowker's view of the strategy for rail in the years ahead. In the last couple of months, both the institute and the Commission for Integrated Transport have highlighted the need for clear policies for congestion charging and offered a way ahead. But there is more to do if these matters are to get the profile they need at large so that there is a better understanding of their urgency. Turning to the Institute's internal affairs, the author reminds that voting members will receive their ballot papers so that they can contribute to the decision on the new articles for the institute that are needed to adopt the proposals for a new shape for the institute. The final decision will be taken on April 25, 2002 at an extraordinary general meeting to be held at the institute's offices in London, England.
