The transportation specialist group of the Institute of Management Services is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. It was in the latter part of 1969 that a number of work study practitioners engaged in ports and shipping decided to set up an organization to represent and promote their interests. They formed the shipping and port operations specialist group under the aegis of their professional association, the then Institute of Work Study Practitioners. The new organization quickly established a name for itself in the industry, promoting the use of work study and allied techniques through a series of conferences and seminars. Soon, a regular newsletter, site visits, workshops and an information service were added to the agenda. Rating films were produced and an educational award, sponsored by the then Felixstowe Dock & Railway Co., introduced. Even career advice was given.
