  5. AST&L Merger

  6. American Society of Transportation and Logistics to Merge with APICS Combination Extends Expertise of Global Leader in Supply Chain Research, Education and Certification Programs [This is the headline of the press release that went out on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.]

  7. Meet AST&L www.astl.org AST&L is the professional organization for transportation and logistics professionals. • Founded in 1946 • 800 members • 300 student members • Research journal • Designations • Certified in Transportation and Logistics (CTL) began in 1948 • Global Logistics Associate (GLA) • Professional Designation in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (PLS) . APICS has managed the back office operations of AST&L since 2013.

  8. Why Are We Better Together? The merger unites two industry leaders with complementary offerings to expand, extend and deepen the APICS end-to-end supply chain and logistics body of knowledge that fuels global supply chain research, education and certification programs. APICS and AST&L realize that all aspects of supply chain are increasingly integrated. Education, training and credential programs that offer an end-to-end supply chain perspective are critical to help professionals advance and organizations thrive. Together we have more capabilities to address two of the most important topics in the global economy today ─ developing supply chain talent and elevating supply chain performance.

  9. Strategic Rationale of the Combination • Creates the most complete supply chain body of knowledge • Ensures investment, improvement and continued relevancy of transportation and logistics content • Strengthens APICS competitive position and platform for growth • This combination is poised to benefit members, customers, partners, and the supply chain community in several ways. Specifically, the merger:

  10. Additional Considerations As the recognized standard in operations and supply chain industry certifications, APICS is well positioned to offer a transportation and logistics credential. AST&L and APICS certification programs have always been closely aligned. APICS designees are able to waive up to two Certified in Transportation and Logistics (CTL) exam modules. APICS has managed the “back office” operations of AST&L since 2013.

  11. Timeline of Activities Timeline • May 2: APICS Board approval • June 1: AST&L member voting begins • June 15: AST&L member voting ends • Mid-July: Legal filings will be completed • December:Integration complete Q: What’s Next? A: The merger needs to be ratified by the AST&L members. The voting window opens on June 1 and closes on June 15. Following an affirmative AST&L member vote, legal documents will be filed. A unification committee made recommendations to the APICS board and APICS staff will begin to work on these recommendations.

Millennial Strategy Strategic Intent: Clearly differentiate APICS products and services Ensure relevancy of our marketing Fuel growth and continued organizational success by meeting the needs of this key - and growing - customer segment Strategy Tenets: Develop programming and communicate with APICS Millennials understanding they are: Educated and advancing. Differentiating themselves through education is a way to hit the next career level, earn more, pay off their loans and support the lifestyle they want. Value and values-driven. They are cautious consumers seeking deals, but also like to show their commitment to the issues that speak to their heart. Technologically astute. This is the online generation. They expect state-of-the-art interaction. If it takes too long to load, they “x” out. If it looks ugly, it’s over. Image conscious, socially networked. Continuously curating their personal brand, sharing their thoughts, influenced by and influencing others, with the expectation they will be heard and receive a rapid response. Diverse and different. More women and more minorities with more education entering the supply chain and operations management workforce. This is not a one-size-fits-all generation and it’s not a global phenomenon.
