Dr Steinberg presents at the Global CILT Conference



Dr David Steinberg, Programme Director of Logistics at Heriot-Watt takes the floor as plenary speaker this year at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Global Centenary Convention in Manchester, June. The CILT is a membership organisation which was founded on the 3rd November 1919. It's fascinating beginnings occurred when a group of senior transport professionals met in the Savoy Hotel in London. 

“During World War One, they had witnessed strategic failures when trying to move goods and vehicles and now, in peace time, they decided to create an organisation that would change the World.  The Institute of Transport began with the primary objective being 'to promote, encourage and co-ordinate the study of the science and art of transport in all its branches'.

The inaugural meeting of the group was held on 22 March 1920.  Today, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport is the only organisation for all logistics and transport professionals on land, sea and in the air, across the professional sectors – from Bus & Coach to Ports & Maritime. The School of Social Sciences Logistics masters (MSc) programmes are accredited by CILT and our faculty works with them throughout the year ensuring that both our teaching is work place relevant and on occasions such as this, our in house faculty experts can present and provide input to industry professionals.
