ELA, the European Logistics Association, is a federation of 22 national logistics associations, covering almost every country in Central, Western & Eastern Europe. The members of these National Logistics Associations are professionals working in a logistics function, mainly in the industry but also in different service sectors. Throughout this network ELA reaches 55.000 logistics professionals.
ELA aims to:
- promote the logistics and supply chain profession by empowering the profesional competencies,
- to provide an international forum for networking,
- to promote innovation and best practices in the European logistics & supply chain field,
- to exchange ideas, share knowledge and diseminate information within the network.
One of the most important fundamentals of ELA is The European Certification Board of Logistics (ECBL), a body within ELA who manages the Standards of Competencies in Logistics and Supply Chain aiming for a harmonised level of qualification in logistics.
