I am proud to be a member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and proud of what our profession delivers for humanity. The world will call on us to play a vital role supporting economies in their recovery from Covid-19, delivering materials to industry and providing mobility for employment and the reconnection of families. I know that we will all embrace this huge responsibility, and I, like all of our global members, will do my utmost to make my contribution.

I am acutely aware of how the Institute must continue to deliver unrivalled support for its members, evolving to meet the needs of a rapidly changing economic and social environment, and playing our part as a global institute for a global profession. I will work closely with international colleagues to meet these challenges, and ensure we keep delivering a world class membership experience.

I look forward to a bright future for CILT in which we all continue to grow stronger together.
