Flexi makes board game donation to local schools
Children at Glynne Primary School, Kingswinford settle down to play ‘Business On The Move’

Narrow Aisle Ltd, the manufacturer of Flexi articulated fork lift trucks, Is donating copies of the recently launched board game - ‘Business On The Move’ - to local primary schools in its local the Black Country region, as a way of encouraging children to learn more about the important - but often overlooked - role that global logistics plays in their day-to-day lives.

The specially designed game challenges students to run a business that must respond to customers’ orders, moving different products to their domestic market by combinations of air, sea, rail and road quickly, profitably and environmentally responsibly.

Joanne Wilson, Narrow Aisle Ltd’s sales operations manager, commented: “The ‘Business On The Move’ game is an excellent way to learn about the modern commercial world and with a shortage of logistics professionals at all levels in this country we hope that some of the students who have enjoyed playing ‘Business On The Move’ will go on to consider logistics as a rewarding career path when they are older.”
