APICS News-May 5 2015

Michael Roman - Monday, May 04, 2015

I’m very pleased to share exciting news about our organization. APICS and American Society of Transportation and Logistics (AST&L) will announce tomorrow that the boards of directors of both organizations have approved an agreement under which AST&L will merge with APICS upon ratification by AST&L member vote.

The merger will expand, extend and deepen the end-to-end supply chain body of knowledge that fuels APICS global supply chain research, education and certification programs. Together, APICS and AST&L offer unmatched content and subject matter expertise that will enable individuals and organizations to meet key supply chain challenges.

This agreement acknowledges the importance of transportation and logistics, and the tremendous innovation impacting delivery processes today. It also reflects our commitment to keeping our content and capabilities at the forefront of our industry, providing our members, customers and the supply chain community at large the most up-to-date, relevant and complete body of knowledge. This is a strategic combination that paves the way for us to fortify supply chain education and certification in the areas of transportation and logistics.

If AST&L’s members vote to approve the merger, APICS intends to integrate AST&L with its existing operations. We anticipate the transaction to be complete in July.

While we are excited about the possibilities ahead, our main objective is to continue to provide excellent service to our members and customers. Thank you for your support as we prepare for these exciting changes.


Best regards,

Abe Eshkenazi
Chief Executive Officer
