What is CILTHK
The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) is the professional body for those engaged in various sectors of transport and logistics, including air, sea and land, for both passengers and freight transportation. The Chartered Institute of Transport (CIT) was formed in the United Kingdom in 1919 as the Institute of Transport and became a Chartered Institute in 1926. The Institute first set up the Hong Kong Branch in 1968 and it was upgraded to the HK Section in 1972. On 1 October 1991, the HK Section was upgraded to National Council status and renamed as the Chartered Institute of Transport in Hong Kong (CITHK). This change gave CITHK the authority to handle all institute matters independently.
The membership of CILTHK is now around 1,900 and broadly ranges from experienced senior managers to junior staff in the industries of shipping, logistics, airline, railway, road, public transport, government, educational institutes and consultancy.
In line with the change of the International Institute and in recognition of the fact that the fields of transport and logistics are complementary and highly interdependent and have a big overlap of activities and competence, the Institute was renamed as the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) in July 2001.
Having such a large international and growing family of now 31 countries, a new universal visual identity for CILT has been created. The new logo will present a clear image for the Institute to be recognised globally as the first choice professional body for the supply chain, logistics and transport industry. The official launching of the new logo at CILTHK will be in May 2014.
