UK – The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK) says it has added a new dimension to its activities by launching a new professional forum, the Process Management Data (PMD) Forum, after a merger with time management company Commercial Work Data. The PMD Forum will cover all eight CILT Professional Sectors; Supply Chain, Transport Planning, Rail, Active Travel & Travel Planning, Bus & Coach, Ports Maritime & Waterways, Freight Forwarding and Aviation and is aimed at promoting Predetermined Time Systems which provide accurate data that is easily adapted to specific processes and quantification needs.

The CILT is dedicated to support and improve the lot of its 18,000 members and take the view that successful organisations want to be fit for the future with processes that are effective, efficient, productive and timely and employ staff who are motivated and involved. In order to achieve these aims, organisations need to consider many of the different management and process improvement techniques that are available today.

This is the blueprint for the new forum, and to complement it CILT has launched a new range of short courses aimed specifically at people working in warehousing, retail and administration. Peter Newman, current Chairman of CWD said of the merger:

“We are delighted that this link up with CILT will secure the long term future and development of our proven data and systems.”
