This article reports that the Surrey branch of the Institute of Logistics and Transport held its first annual discussion event in 2000. The speakers were Richard Lamming, Jason Valient, Richard J. Hunt and the panel chairman was Stephen Rinsler. Richard Lamming opened the debate proposing that logistics involved the chaos theory, that the double helix theory was being looked into by colleges in Chicago University, and that the only certainty about the future is uncertainty. Jason Valient and his view of the future started off quite bleakly with ever more transport on the roads, ever more blocked roads, road tolls. Richard Hunt noted that certain transport companies were laying on two trucks carrying identical loads but going by different routes to the same destination just to ensure the load got there.
