CILT SL announces Logistics Excellence Awards

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Sri Lanka (CILT Sri Lanka) announced the launch of ‘CILT Sri Lanka Logistics Excellence Awards and Scholarships 2018’ at the recently concluded CILT International Conference, at The Kingsbury.

The Logistics and Transport industry is a vital component of the Sri Lankan economy and as the leading professional association for the industry, CILT Sri Lanka wishes to recognise and celebrate the exceptional contributions that organisations and individuals have made to take the industry to new heights and enhance the contributions to the national economy.

Furthermore, as an effort to advance the knowledge and expertise of new entrants and youth in the industry, and contribute to their overall capacity enrichment, CILT Sri Lanka plans to award scholarships to students to support them to be the future leaders of the industry.

“CILT Sri Lanka believes that industry recognition and capacity building would go a long way in developing the industry and augmenting the performance of the Logistics and Transportation sector”, said Dr. Lalith Edirisinghe, CILT Council Member and Chairman of the Awards and Scholarships Committee.

Candidates for the award of the scholarship are to be considered under two categories - Individual and Corporate.The award for the individual category would be a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ bestowed on an individual who has an outstanding track record in the Transport and Logistics Industry. Similarly, there will be three awards under the corporate category to recognise the most outstanding organizations in the industry. The three corporate awards will represent large, medium, and small categories.

Logistics and Transport education would be the key to capacity building efforts. Therefore, CILT Sri Lanka wishes to offer academic scholarships. Under the program, CILT Sri Lanka says that a variety of scholarships will be offered for study courses in Logistics and Transport at Diploma, Undergraduate, and Postgraduate degree levels.

The final selection will be carried out by an independent panel of judges.
