Honorary Distinguished Logistics Professionals (DLP)
The AST&L Board of Directors awarded three honorary Distinguished Logistics Professional (DLP) credentials during the AST&L Annual Meeting in New Orleans on October 18, 2014. George Yarusavage and David Yeley were honored for their continued commitment to leadership. Both have served on the AST&L board for several decades. In addition to their industry contributions as transportation logistics professionals, George and David provide a legacy as AST&L volunteers.
Laurie Denham was honored for her dedication to and leadership of AST&L over the past 12 years. She continues to serve as president.
On October 29, 2014, the University of Wisconsin-Superior (UWS) and Beijing Wuzi University (BWU) signed an agreement to cooperate on their transportation and logistics management programs. Under the agreement, the two schools will cooperate on research, faculty exchange and academic programs. At the core is the “2+2” program in which BWU students complete their first two years of study in Beijing then complete their degrees at UWS. Upon graduation from UWS, the students receive dual degrees from UWS and BWU, and are also eligible for CTL certification.
Aligned with AST&L’s vision to be the global leader in educating and certifying transportation and logistics professionals, this program is beneficial to both parties. BWU students learn about advanced logistics systems in the U.S. and UWS students gain exposure to China’s fast-developing logistics industry. Read more.
