ABSTRACT
Jean Haslam who is a member of the Institute of Logistics and Transport is profiled in this report. It was on March 13, 1972, when she became the first woman to be admitted a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Transport. Born in November 1922, she was educated at the Hastings High School. She was invited to apply for a job as clerk for the Rylands company, while she worked as a waitress at the Patten Arms. She was successful and was soon promoted to assistant traffic manager when that position became vacant. During her time at the Rylands in the 1950s, she studied transport and passed the examinations to become a member of the Chartered Institute of Transport. Vacancies at the local Burtonwood military base were being advertised and she was delighted to get a job there in 1967. Her reputation was sealed in 1972 when she successfully negotiated transport contracts during the relocation of ammunition storage from three Midlands depots to a single site in Caerwent, South Wales.
