Logistics is the broad pathway for the products we use to reach their final destination, and it’s a booming business in Virginia. According to the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the industry has a direct economic output of $11.3 billion and employs over 78,000 people, primarily in trucking, warehousing, and transportation support. Nearly 500 logistics jobs are currently available in the Greater Richmond area, ranging from entry-level to senior management.*
You probably have roles in your own company that fall into the logistics category — supply chain coordinator, transportation manager, warehouse supervisor, or operations manager. But how can you ensure that the people you hire for these roles will enhance your company’s productivity and competitiveness?
CCWA offers the Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) certification program, which covers a wide range of skills necessary for success in the logistics industry. These skills include safety, quality control, supply chain management, receiving, storage, and communications. The program begins with basic logistics knowledge and skills and prepares an individual for entry-level positions by earning a Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) certification. The program then moves on to more advanced skills by preparing individuals for the mid-level CLT exam.
