  • The demand for qualified staff is outstripping available supply and this will worsen as the boomer exodus starts.
  • People understand that a designation program can help them get smarter, faster and that a designation is the surest way to boost their earning power, advancement potential and access to other career enhancements.

Proven logistics expertise has compelling impact on key KPIs

A CCLP designation develops and demonstrates abilities. And abilities drive performance.

Uninterrupted supply chain operations are more closely linked to a company's overall financial performance than any other operational factor.1 And recent research out of MIT reports that uninterrupted supply chain operations were more sensitive to skill set and expertise factors than any of the other big factors, such as commodity pricing or the cost of energy and oil.2

Having mature supply chain logistics capabilities in place to avoid or manage supply chain interruptions has compelling impacts on key operating performance indicators, such as:2

  • Total supply chain lead-time variability
  • Total cost
  • Order fulfillment lead time
  • Inventory turns
  • Supply chain assets utilization
  • Total supply chain lead-time
  • Customer service level or fill-rate
  • Sales revenue
  • Market-share
  • Market value

The CCLP designation from CITT provides the kind of ability-building companies need to run profitable, invulnerable and sustainable supply chain logistics operations. And the CCLP designation is proof its holder has met CITT's industry-based, widely-respected, and nationally-recognised standard of expert-ability.
