ABSTRACT
The career of Edward Arthur Lainson, member of the Institute of Logistics and Transport, who died on September 17, 2001 was highlighted in this article. While still at the Saint Catherine's College in Cambridge, England, he and some friends set up a business called the Undergraduate Roadways, which lived by hiring in coaches from local independent operators, and which in 1934 obtained a road service license for an express coach service from Cambridge to Peterborough and Skegness. When the Premiere Travel company was formed, this became the company's first operational service, to be followed by the acquisition of the Service 5, Birmingham-Coventry-Leicester-Bedford-Cambridge-Colchester-Clacton, which after the war was to become well known to holidaymakers along the length of its route. he took the company into the Passenger Vehicle Operators' Association in its early years, and was its chairman in 1966.
