Trans­port & Logis­tics Pro­fes­sional Qual­i­fy­ing Exam­i­na­tion (PQE)

CILTHK

The Char­tered Insti­tute of Logis­tics and Trans­port in Hong Kong (CILTHK) is the pro­fes­sional body for those engaged in var­i­ous sec­tors of trans­port and logis­tics, includ­ing air, sea and land, for both pas­sen­gers and freight trans­porta­tion. The Char­tered Insti­tute of Logis­tics and Trans­port (CILT) was formed in the United Kingdom.

The Insti­tute first set up the Hong Kong Branch in 1968 the HK Sec­tion was upgraded to National Coun­cil sta­tus and renamed as the Char­tered Insti­tute of Trans­port in Hong Kong (CITHK). This change gave CITHK the author­ity to han­dle all insti­tute mat­ters inde­pen­dently. The mem­ber­ship of CILTHK is now around 1,900 and broadly ranges from expe­ri­enced senior man­agers to junior staff in the indus­tries of ship­ping, logis­tics, air­line, rail­way, road, pub­lic trans­port, gov­ern­ment, edu­ca­tional insti­tutes and consultancy.

In view of the high aca­d­e­mic stan­dard of the Pro­fes­sional Qual­i­fy­ing Exam­i­na­tion (PQE), it is envis­aged that most of the can­di­dates should be at least Stu­dent mem­bers of CILTHK. If the can­di­date is not cur­rently a Stu­dent mem­ber, he or she must be a Mem­ber (MILT) or an Affil­i­ate mem­ber before he or she is qual­i­fied to take the exam­i­na­tion. Fur­ther­more, the exam­i­na­tion also pro­vides the chance for Char­tered Mem­bers (CMILTs) to enrich their logis­tics and trans­port knowledge.

The struc­ture of the PQE is divided into two lev­els, which cover 12 sub­jects. A can­di­date can attempt any num­ber of sub­jects at either Ordi­nary Level or Advanced Level. To meet­ing the aca­d­e­mic require­ment for being a Char­tered Mem­ber (CMILT), can­di­date will need to suc­cess­fully com­plete (and/​or be exempted for) the Ordi­nary Level sub­jects plus sub­jects at either Trans­port or Logis­tics stream at the Advanced Level.
