The Institute is represented worldwide with National Councils and Institute Branches. Each council is, in its own right, a separate organisation representing the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport in their territory. In North America, we all share the common cause of achieving the Institute’s primary objective.

Membership of the Institute brings a host of benefits to an individual:

Networking and Knowledge Sharing Opportunities: CILTNA has a national presence across Canada, with Regional Chapters in Canada and the United States. A key benefit of membership is access to the regular events organized at the regional and national level, including two national events, and regular (monthly or bi-monthly) luncheons, seminars and workshops at the regional level. The events are an excellent opportunity to hear presentations, discuss issues and share ideas related to transportation and logistics issues and trends, from the policy to operational level, with qualified industry professionals.  Previous events and speakers can be seen here:


Access to Current Transportation Industry Information and Knowledge Centre: CILTNA members receive an electronic weekly newsletter summarizing transportation-related news and events across North America, spanning policy, technical and operational issues.

International networking and knowledge sharing opportunities: CILT has over 33,000 members in 30 countries. By joining CILTNA you have access to this network and all of the networking opportunities it entails, including international conferences and contacts across the globe in the transportation and logistics sector.
