Welcome To Procurement & Supply Chain Webinar


A few months ago, when a minor glitch caused a massive blockage in the Suez Canal, it wreaked global havoc causing economic disasters around the world, effects of which can still be seen lurking on the global landscape. The most significant impact of the blockage is the residual effect on international supply chains. Studies have shown that around 10 percent of all international maritime trade passes through the channel, and each day of unavailability costs approximately USD 10 billion in world trade.

While such accidents cannot be predicted, the speed of corrective actions plays a key role in reducing the impact of such mishaps. This is where professional knowledge and training assume great significance. CILT Level 5 is an all-encompassing course that allows professionals to learn more about logistics and transport in the aviation, shipping, and marine industries.
The CILT (UK) Level 5 Professional Diploma in Logistics and Transport is designed to enhance new and existing expertise in the supply chain, passenger transport, road freight and transport planning environments as well as developing core management skills.
