Today's globalisation and increasing client expectations are putting those responsible for logistics and the distribution chain under pressure. Complex international contexts, as well as new technologies, require training and a “logistics culture” that only those with long experience in the field and international expertise can possess.

The CLTD programme was created with the intention of gathering together the best international experiences in logistics, distribution and transport and to create a programme dedicated to the logistics professionals able to supply: operational tools, best practices, experiences and contents to bring concrete solutions to the company.

The extent of the Master in Logistics allows it to deal deeply with all kinds of topics such as, for example: the connection with the supply chain and new trends (lean logistics), stock and warehouse management, Transport, global Logistics (infrastructure, customs, etc.), distributive network planning and finally Reverse Logistics. The aim is to provide participants with the widest possible spectrum of knowledge of such a vast field.

The Master is based on APICS’ Body of Knowledge (BOK) with the aim of:
- Transferring Best Practice into the fields of Logistics, Transport and Distribution
- Preparing the candidate for international CLTD (Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution)
- Encouraging the passage from knowledge to skills.

The course is held by certified teachers with many years of experience teaching and professionally in the fields of Transportation, Logistics & Distribution.

Upon request, Advance organises in-house training programmes in any language.

The Master is divided into 5 days of training and 8 modules which cover APICS’ Body of Knowledge in the field. In the course of the programme the following are scheduled:
- A training phase in the classroom
- A phase of individualized study with long distance support by the instructors
- Simulation of an exam in the classroom with a discussion on the results

The Master is strongly interactive and accompanied by exchanges of experiences which allows the participants to enrich their knowledge and deal with their company’s problems.

The course is taught in English.
