Abstract

Describes how Clipper Logistics Group, a pan-European retail and high value logistics specialist applied its unrivalled retail and fashion logistics expertise, including consolidation centres, and pre-retail e-fulfilment, to take on the role of 'critical friend' and support a team of academics from Anglia Ruskin and London Metropolitan Universities in developing a Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Seed Corn funded three dimensional (3D) warehouse in the popular virtual world Web site 'Second Life'. Discusses how creating an online warehouse with a number of design and operational flaws can help to train people in occupational health and safety issues and bridge the gap of time and space for international students or students with learning disabilities.
