Introduction

It has now been established without any doubt whatsoever that lean supply chains and efficient logistics systems lead directly to increased bottom line profits.

Leading edge companies which successfully gain competitive advantage and which are able to implement immediate cost savings, are those which possess knowledgeable and skillful logistics professionals

As more and more responsibility is placed on the Logistics function, the need has intensified for its practitioners to be highly skilled in the various elements of Supply Chain Management and to be completely up to date with best practices in the industry both national and international. Logisticians must take their place alongside engineers and accountants as proficient and exceptionally well-trained professionals.

Many Irish companies wishing to up-skill their Supply Chain Personnel have found that there is a glaring lack of structured Logistics training available. The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILTI), the professional body for Logistics professionals, is dedicated to bridging this competency gap and to enhancing the professionalism of those involved in the industry.

The Institute’s course in Logistics Management will up-skill participants and provide them with the necessary expertise to meet the Logistics challenges of the future.

The course will explore and critically examine the latest Logistics success recipes with a view to their application in the participant’s own organisation.

All best practices will be illustrated with videos and case studies from leading Irish and multi-national companies.

The course is particularly suitable for logistics and/or transport personnel who require flexible learning to fit around their work commitments.

In the present difficult economic environment, training personnel in Supply Chain Management skills must not be postponed but must be intensified now to ensure immediate bottom line savings and success for the future.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport’s Diploma in Logistics & Supply Chain Management, is now producing a breed of professionals whose new found expertise has enabled both the individual and the company that they work for to reap the benefits in a very short time frame.

The Courses and Qualifications that Logistics
Professionals and Organisations were waiting for, are now available.
