Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SHIPPING/LOGISTICS -

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.
