The Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) is Australia’s largest association for Supply Chain and Logistics professionals and practitioners working in SME’s through to large Corporates. Driving a competitive advantage in Australia’s Supply Chain & Logistics. Of the 2.1 million Companies in Australia, almost all have supply chain and logistics functions. In 2016, we directly run events across Australia. Additionally, we co-organised joint events with other respected Industry Partners and supported selected Industry Conferences. No other Association runs as many supply chain and logistics national events across Australia as the SCLAA.
We are a member based organisation, run by volunteers and at our very core is our mission to serve and advance the interests of Supply Chain and Logistics professionals and practitioners in Australia. We do this through the development of the profession and practice, collaboration with industry stakeholders and promotion and recognition of world’s best practice. In 2015 for the first time, half of our State or Division Presidents are women and the SCLAA actively promotes women in the supply chain. All Members are entitled to receive diesel, E10/E14 and unleaded 91, 95, 98 discounts of up to 5c a litre at over 2000 Caltex, Woolworths/Caltex and Ampol stations across Australia. It is open to member’s family members as well, who you approve to use your StarCard. We also offer Members free subscriptions to MHD Magazine, Inside FMCG and Inside Retail. Further, we have also negotiated a real time foreign exchange platform for members very close to spot rates, so around 8 – 10 times better than Bank rates. Members can also take forward contracts to lock in certainty in almost any currency.
We encourage membership from all persons involved in Supply Chain activities including those working in SME’s with a view that advancing their knowledge of the supply chain will provide particular benefits not generally considered available to many Enterprises. We have a popular Industry and Globally recognised Certification program called the Certified Professional Logistician (CPL). The SCLAA is run by hard working volunteers, so if you want to get involved either in your local State or Territory or at a National level please contact us. The SCLAA is run by members for members and is unique in our industry.
Being a not for profit Association, membership fees are driven back into the organisation so that SCLAA members benefit from the programs available, from the opportunities for continuing education and from sharing ideas and knowledge with fellow professionals. Commitment to the SCLAA signals your support of our profession, adding to its strength, which benefits all supply chain and logistics professionals and practitioners. We welcome ex LAA members to our thriving Association.
This website is the central point to inform you of SCLAA events and activities that will allow you to make full use of your membership. It will also put you in contact with other members via forums where topical issues and ideas can be discussed.
