"APICS merged with American Society of Transportation and Logistics (AST&L) earlier this year to better serve one of the fastest growing industries in the world - logistics," said APICS CEO, Abe Eshkenazi. "The APICS CLTD is a direct result of our merger with AST&L and gave us an opportunity to provide our members and customers with more comprehensive content and training programs. Working with and developing the logistics content, we are able to extend APICS's value for individuals pursuing or advancing careers in logistics, transportation and distribution."
The CLTD designation focuses on eight content areas:
Logistics and Supply Chain Overview
Capacity Planning and Demand Management
Inventory and Warehouse Management
Global Logistics Considerations
Logistics Network Design
Reverse Logistics and Sustainability
This new certification program will offer new courseware, self-study and instructor-led learning options and a single computer-based exam delivered worldwide via a test center network.
