The 'CILT- International Diploma in Logistics & Transport' course has helped me to build a strong foundation on such domestic as well as international logistics and transport. Besides, it also has played a significant role in giving me dignity in my professional life
My journey to International Diploma in Logistics and Transport by CILT was full of learning. As a Transport official, I was just focused on shipment and delivery. Cost optimization, process automation, choice of cost-effective modes, etc. were not considered during my decision making, however, this course tremendously expanding my thinking areas and developing the level of concepts. It helps me to think globally and encourages me to update myself on contemporary issues like modern technologies
The “International Diploma In Logistics and Transports” under CILT is a door of new opportunities to learn and share your experience in the supply chain system. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to see and observe so many real-life examples with problems with solutions on logistics, transports, supply-chain, and warehouse management. It also helps me to get introduced to the transportation system of Bangladesh in a new way. Most of the things were new for me and I really enjoyed the course
