Sterling Bank, CILT partner to boost transportation
Sterling Bank Plc, has expressed its desire to partner the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) to positively influence development in Nigeria’s transportation sector.
Group Head, Strategy & Innovation of the bank, Mr. Shina Atilola, stated this while addressing executive members of the Institute who paid a courtesy visit to the corporate headquarters in Lagos recently.
He said the transportation sector is a major contributor to the economy and that “without effective transportation, businesses will not attain their true potentials because they will be denied the opportunity to connect with supply chain partners and customers.”
According to him, the partnership with the institute will ensure provision of effective support to the profession and industry in line with pioneering works in the sector. On her part, Chief Human Resource Officer of the bank, Mrs. Temi Dalley, commended the institute for its robust curriculum which advances the development and improvement of the local logistics, transport and supply chain sub-sectors.
The acting National Executive Director of the institute, Mr Paul Ndibe, said the organization started in 1919 in the United Kingdom, became operational in Nigeria in 1958 and has been contributing in various ways to the development of logistics and transportation sector of the Nigerian economy.
