Women in Transport and Logistics



Women in Logistics and Transport (WiLAT) was launched in June 2013 to promote our industry to female members and to encourage and support their career development. By June 2014 WiLAT had over 1600 members in 14 countries and we’re still growing.

Australia is establishing the Women in Transport and Logistics and our Convenor, Peta Irving, would love to hear from women that are interested in growing the WiLAT Chapter in Australia.

Please contact admin@cilta.com.au if you require more information or would love to help WiLAT to build its team.

“We’re enjoying great success in cultivating a spirit of togetherness to thrive in a male dominated industry”

(Aisha Ali Ibrahim, WiLAT Global Convenor at the WiLAT Africa Regional Conference March 2014).


WiLAT Vision and Mission

Our vision is to be the most sought after advocacy, professionalism and empowerment of women in Supply Chain, Logistics and Transport.

Our mission is to promote the status of women in Logistics and Transport, to bring together those who support the talent and career development of women and to provide a support network and mentoring opportunities for women in the sector.

WiLAT Membership

WiLAT membership is fully dependent on the membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). Female members of CILT automatically become members of their local group of WilAT. Male members of CILT or anyone interested in WilAT but not yet a member of CILT may become a Friend of WiLAT.

For further information please contact the chairperson of your local group or your regional co-ordinator.


WiLAT Structure

Our Global Convenor, who sits on the CILT International Management Committee, is responsible for the growth and development of WiLAT internationally and for coordinating our annual global conference. Regional coordinators promote the interests of women in their region and encourage membership. Country groups work with and on behalf of women at the local level, organising events, providing local support and networking opportunities, and representing women within the local CILT council.


Establishing a WiLAT Group

WiLAT groups are formed within CILT Territorial Organisations and Branches. In areas where CILT is not yet established WiLAT activities will be guided by the regional coordinator.

Please contact your regional coordinator for more information on establishing a local group.
