Welcome to CILT Malaysia!

In 1926 we were granted a Royal Charter by King George V with himself as the Patron and the Prince of Wales as the Honorary President. The Institute grew in importance and influence across the world. We established territorial organisations in ten countries and in 1971 were granted the name of the Chartered Institute of Transport by Queen Elizabeth II. In 2001 we became the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport as the two leading professional bodies joined together.

The Institute is a progressive and purposeful organization which provides a forum for professionals and academicians engaged in transport & logistics industry, whether it is in planning, operation and management, logistics and physical distribution, industrial transport, transport technology or for those whose contribution to transport lies in the areas of education, research and associated activities.

The Institute’s Qualifying Examinations are internationally recognised professional transport and logistics qualification of a high educational standard. A Member with a pass in the CILT Qualifying Examination is accepted as equivalent to a general degree. Together with appropriate work experiences, they lead to full Membership and the designatory letters of “CMILT” which is recognised by the Public Services Department in Malaysia as equivalent to an honours degree of a local university. Avenues for post-graduate studies in the logistics and transport field may be pursued at any local or overseas universities offering such courses.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Malaysia (CILTM) had its beginnings in 1965 with the formation of Malaysia Section. This was to fulfil the need for the qualified locals in the field of logistics and transport after independence and the increasing demand in the transport industries. In October 1990, the Malaysia Section was upgraded to that of a National Council. Today, the situation in the logistics and transport industry even more dynamic and the demand for trained logistics and transport managers and operators is greater than ever.

Internationally, the institute has about 35,000 members with about half the number residing outside the UK, mostly in the Commonwealth countries. Malaysia has about 2,300 members of all grades. Membership of the CILT not only offers today’s transportants a breadth and depth of training through its excellent examination system, it also offers the opportunity to exchange valuable ideas and experiences with other logistics and transport professionals.

The Institute also constantly strives to keep up with the ever changing development in the Industry.
