Toronto, Ontario – November 12, 2019 - At Canada Logistics Conference 2019, CITT presented its annual awards recognizing both professional and academic accomplishments. This year marks the inauguration of four new awards, given to CITT-Certified Logistics Professionals (CCLPs) who exemplify CITT’s goals of fostering excellence and thought leadership in supply chain logistics.
Ginnie Venslovaitis, CCLP, was awarded the Award of Excellence – CITT’s prestigious award, honoring elite distinction in supply chain logistics, professional and personal integrity, and commitment to improvement of the industry. “I was shocked and elated when I learned I had won the Award of Excellence,” she said. “My contributions pale in comparison to the past award winners, and I’m so humbled to have been chosen for this award by the selection committee”
Ms. Venslovaitis began her career in logistics nearly 30 years ago – “I started working all three shifts clearing shipments into the US, back in the days of Glengarry, Smith, Taggart, Highland and Cabano. We were still using punch cards for Customs Entry”. A commitment to professional development led her to earn her US Customs Brokers License, and eventually, after building experience in air, ocean, and exporting to remote countries, earning her CCLP designation from CITT in 1998. Since then, she’s held senior positions at Unilever and HBC. She is currently Director of Operations & Client Services at Armour Transportation Services. “I particularly enjoy designing and creating new supply chain solutions – it’s the fun part”, she commented about her passion for the business. “It’s the challenge and executing the solutions I thrive on. To be recognized for that is a real privilege.”
