Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution

▪  The APICS CLTD sets the global standard for logistics best practices and assists employers in developing the personnel needed to meet today’s ever-increasing customer demand for logistics service.

▪ The APICS CLTD certification aims to lessen the impact of the logistics industry’s skill gaps. The program takes an end-to-end supply chain view of logistics operations, extending from inbound materials management, outbound distribution and reverse logistics to encompass all the integrative process steps that define supply chain logistics.

▪ ASTL(American Society of Transportation and Logistics)에서 교통, 물류부문 특화된 CTL(Certification of Transportation and logistics)운영 했으나 ASTL이 APICS로 흡수합병됨에 따라 CTL의 후속 Certification인 CLTD로 변경 적용 되었습니다.


산업공학, 물류, 경영 전공의 경우 취득하는데 크게 어려움 없으며 Self study의 경우10~14개월. GICS와 함께라면 3~4개월 정도 소요됩니다.

Exam Review를 통한 Pass는 불가하며 SCM의 Big Picture와 Inter-relationship에 대한 명확한 이해가 필요합니다. 


아직까지 기업이나 전문가들 사이에서 인지도가 크지 않습니다.

​과거 CTL의 경우 중국의 물류회사나 미국계 회사에서 인지도가 있었으나 APICS의 CLTD로 변경 적용되면서 아직까지 인지도가 크지는 않지만 점차 영역을 확대해 나갈 것으로 보입니다.
