APICS has further enhanced its reputation as the premier professional association for supply chain managers with its recent launch of the APICS Certified in Logistics, Transportation, and Distribution (CLTD) credential program.

The program - developed in tandem with subject matter experts over the past nine months – creates a new certification that may set the global standard for logistics best practices.

It also aims to elevate knowledge and skills in logistics, transportation, and distribution practitioners.

The CLTD joins the respected APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) and Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) programs and furthers APICS's position as the leading organization for end-to-end supply chain research, education, and certification.

The timing of such an announcement could not have been better.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics identifies transportation and logistics as the second largest employment sector in the United States, employing more than six million people.

SCMR salutes APICs for once again seizing the moment.
