History of removals and logistics graces coffee tables

History of removals and logistics graces coffee tables

When our client, the British Association of Removers (BAR), began life in 1900, horse-drawn wagons were the mainstay of road transport and an intercity home move took three days to complete. Around this time, a unique type of vehicle emerged to serve the demanding, personal and highly specialised task of removals: the pantechnicon. Over the last two centuries, from Dundee to Downing Street, the vehicle’s presence on Britain’s roads has come to symbolise new beginnings, as first documented by Pantechnicon – Analytica Media’s latest hardback, coffee-table publication. Illustrated throughout with captivating photography from across the centuries, Pantechnicon shines a light on an industry whose roots, culture and idiosyncrasies have made a unique contribution to the unfolding of British social history. As the sector’s leading trade association toasts its 120th anniversary this year, Pantechnicon looks back to celebrate a century of professional moving and forward to inspire the next generation of removals specialists.

Worldline’s Integrated Report 2019 published

Worldline has released its Integrated Report for 2019, its second annual integrated report that presents a comprehensive overview of its financial and extra-financial performance.

As their CEO Gilles Grapinet says, “For Worldline, doing what is really good for the business and doing what is really good for society are two faces of the same coin, particularly in the business of payments which is deeply rooted in the very long term due to its intrinsic nature.”

This culture of responsibility and social commitment has been key to Worldline’s resilience during the current phase of the COVID-19 crisis.

Analytica Media wrote many of the texts, copyedited the final document and helped prepare supporting communications materials. The report design incorporates Worldline’s striking new brand which the company will use to communicate its role in shaping the future of payments.
