CILT SL to host Logistics and Transport National Excellence Awards, Scholarships in July
The official awards ceremony of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Sri Lanka (CILT SL) organised with the intention of recognizing individuals and corporates, those who have immensely contributed to the development of the logistics and transport industry, will be hosted in July 2018.
CILT SL strongly believes that this kind of recognition would not only provide individual recognition but would also immensely contribute to the development of the logistics and transport industry. Therefore, expects lively participation from the industry with this endeavour.
The individual category awards only one award annually, titled CILT Sri Lanka Pinnacle Award 2018, a lifetime award that recognizes the most outstanding person of the year in the logistics and transport industry.
CILT SL wishes to recognize contributions made by corporate organisations through corporate category awards, titled Logistics and Transport National Excellence Awards 2018. Six Awards will be awarded under three scales namely, large, medium and small.
An independent panel of judges, who have no conflicting interest with CILT SL or respective applicants, will exercise selection of winners. The key factors contributing to excellence in the logistics and transport industry will be considered as the essential criteria when selecting winners.
No processing fee will be applicable for corporate category awards applications if the organisation has the minimum number, as specified by the awards and scholarships subcommittee of the CILT members (FCILT or CMILT) with a valid membership working in the organisation at the time of submitting the application.
The first-ever CILT Sri Lanka Pinnacle Award will be awarded to the most outstanding person of the year in the logistics and transport industry. Essentially the individual should be a CILT member (FCILT or CMILT) with a valid membership at the time of submitting the application.
CILT SL believes that capacity building would go a long way in developing and augmenting the performance of the logistics and transport industry, particularly considering the deteriorating Logistics Performance Index (LPI) ranking of the country published by the World Bank. Accordingly, CILT SL invites individuals and corporate organisations to join hands in awarding scholarships for logistics and transport education. The prime objective of this endeavour is to facilitate future logisticians with required competencies.
Corporate organisations and individuals who wish to award scholarships for Sri Lankan students to follow educational programmes in logistics and transport may select the program/s they wish to sponsor as recommended by CILT SL. The scholarship/s will be branded under the donor’s name signifying their commitment towards this endeavour. The donors will be invited to award the scholarships at the official ceremony, which will be hosted in July 2018.
The applications and application procedure will be available in due course on the CILT SL website www.ciltsl.com. Inquires: CILT SL Secretariat 11 565 7357/admin@ ciltsl.com.
