APICS Partners With AST&L
February 15, 2008

In an effort to save industry professionals’ valuable time and resources, The Association for Operations Management (APICS) recently announced a partnership with the American Society of Transportation & Logistics (AST&L). The agreement grants Certified Supply Chain Professionals (CSCP) and professionals or fellows who are Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM/CFPIM) waivers for two of the six modules needed to obtain the AST&L’s Certification in Transportation and Logistics (CTL).

CSCP certified professionals seeking their CTL are now able to bypass the Supply Chain Management (elective) module needed to obtain CTL certification. CPIM and CFPIM certified professionals are able to bypass the Logistics Management (required) module.

AST&L began the CTL Certification Program in 1948, known as the CPA of the transportation and logistics industry, and is constantly revising and updating the certification exams, keeping current with changes occurring in the field. To qualify an individual must be an active member of AST&L and have a four-year undergraduate degree or three years of professional experience.
