Specifically CILT Australia works to:
Involve people as members and professionals in Logistics and Transport. L&T continues to change and grow quickly. Our freight logistics is already about 14.5% of Australian GDP and employs about 1.25 million workers while passenger Transport has a direct, positive impact on the livability of our towns and cities and on the growth of our economy. CILT Australia challenges members to get involved and play their part in shaping the future through our events, networking functions, surveys and seminars and our various working groups and committees.
Inform - As L&T grows in complexity knowledge becomes more important than ever. CILT Australia keeps members informed about the critical issues, emerging trends, international and local developments and about the people in L&T who are making a difference via daily RSS newsfeeds, weekly updates, monthly e-newsletters, and access to the on-line International Knowledge Centre, research reports and seminars as well as with social media.
