WiLAT Ireland

CILT Ireland is working to establish a WiLAT group in this country. 

We are keen to hear from members, students and women working in the industry who are interested in getting involved.

The group will not only work to support those currently in the industry but also encourage more women to view logistics, transport and supply chain as career options.
