This article reports that 16-year-old Gordon Stevenson, a high school student attending the Boroughmuir High School in Edinburgh, Scotland, is believed to be the youngest member of the Institute of Logistics and Transport. On becoming a student member at this point in his life, he has made the earliest possible move towards his goal of a career in transport. He is determined to pursue a career in transport planning and already has his sights on a job with the European Commission Directorate-General for Energy and Transport. He is planning his university strategy and is hoping for grades which will allow him, in due course, to take a degree at the Bristol University, which will facilitate his chosen career.
