The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) is the leading international professional body associated with logistics and transport. With over 33,000 members working in over 100 countries across the globe. CILT holds unparalleled professional international recognition.
Established in 1919 as the Chartered Institute of Transport (CIT) and receiving its Royal Charter in 1926, the Institute has an exciting history behind it, but is always adapting to stay consistent with current logistics and transport issues.
The name CIT was changed to CILT in January 2002 following the international merger between CIT and The Institute of Logistics (IL). The principal objective of the Institute is “To promote and encourage the art and science of logistics and transport”.
The Institute achieves this objective through both its membership and its educational qualifications. Membership provides a professional identity to those in the logistics and transport sector, as well as international recognition. The Institute’s professional qualifications educate not only those already in the sector, but also those wishing to enter into it.
The Institute is represented worldwide with National Councils (NCs), National Independent Sections (NISs) and Institute Branches (IBs) totalling over 30 countries in 5 continents. Each territorial organization is, in its own right, a separate organization representing the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport in their territory. They all share the common cause of achieving the Institute’s primary objective.
