Nov.30- Shortlisted! SOCIETAL Target Prestigious LGC Award.
SOCIETAL Travel CIC has been shortlisted for the prestigious national LGC (Local Government Chronicle) Awards, 2018. This is in recognition of the innovative application of “Big Data” to implement sustainable, cost effective and efficient transport solutions for its key partner organisations, including its founder members: Northamptonshire County Council and the University of Northampton.
Societal has been praised for its unique approach of applying supply chain management and theory to what have traditionally been silo-based transport services, in order to generate wider societal benefits and sustainable policy objectives. This “place-based” initiative helps save money, brings in income, avoids costs, removes duplication of effort and enhances service provision.
Welcoming the shortlisting, Tony Ciaburro- SOCIETAL CEO- emphasised that he was proud of this achievement, which reflected the hard work of all involved with SOCIETAL. “Our approach to transport commissioning promises to deliver a ‘triple c’ effect- reducing congestion, decreasing cost and increasing customer service- which will transform the provision of travel within the area”.
