The Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), Steve Agg, visited Aston last week to present a plaque to Professor Ed Sweeney, Head of the Engineering Systems and Management (ESM) group here at Aston University, marking the establishment of a partnership between the two parties. CILT recognises that programmes provided by ESM are practically relevant to industry.
CILT is the world's leading professional body In the supply chain field, with its long history (CILT traces its origins back to 1919 and was granted its Royal Charter in 1926) it is a very reputable institute.
