There are currently thousands of practicing and experienced logistics professionals in the Asia Pacific region. They range from managers of supply chain operations to specialised IT experts to clerical and warehouse based support staff.
With the increased profile and importance placed on the Logistics and Supply Chain Management profession in the last few decades, these dedicated and skilled people have not been recognized, as have their counterparts in other professions. For example, accountants have the CPA accreditation, marketing has the CIM and real estate has the CEHA. Accreditation means something in a professional setting – it implies a focus on excellence and a commitment to personal development within the profession.
It is with this understanding that the Logistics & Supply Chain Management Society launched the CLP and CLE programme in 2000, making us the first industry body to do so.
The CLP is the benchmark of excellence for measuring capability and proficiency within the profession of Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
As a professional certification, the CLP enables employees in the logistics industry to develop their capability more effectively, and in doing so assist in defining the logistics profession. The emphasis on continual improvement of knowledge and skills is timely for an industry that requires skilled personnel to reflect and underpin its importance to our global economy.
To qualify as a CPL candidate, an applicant must have relevant working experience, qualifications and an active participation in the Logistics Profession.
