Wouldn’t it be great if you could increase your customer satisfaction thanks to your well-trained logisticians being assessed according to harmonised and uniform European Standards. And what if HR could base their selection for hiring and training on those same European Standards? www.elalog.org ELA Certification, your solution The European Logistics Association – ELA offers a certification programme based on the ELA Standards aiming for a harmonised level of qualification in logistics. www.elalog.org The system The ELA Standards of Logistics Competence reflect the expectations of workplace performance for logisticians. They have been developed with and agreed by the industry. These Standards are outcome-based and form the basis of assessment. Assessment is independent of any learning programs. The ability of candidates to meet the required Standards will be assessed by our National Certification Boards. www.elalog.org We offer One common standard Using the same terminology and definitions everywhere. International Recognition ELA certification is widely recognised. This increases the flexibility and mobility of your certified logistics employees. A local assessment by National Certification Boards Assessment is available from our National Certification Boards established in more than 20 countries. www.elalog.org We offer Organisations A Standard of Competence ELA certification recognises people’s competence making the certificate extremely attractive for serving as a basis for evaluation, training and recruitment. The European Qualifications Framework - EQF The ELA Standards are mapped to the European Qualifications Framework, an EU initiative for harmonising life-long learning. EQF is a common European reference system that links a number of national qualifications systems and frameworks together. In practice, it functions as a translation device making qualifications transferable. Using this common framework enables learners and workers to have their skills and qualifications recognised in many countries. Updated regularly and in touch with the needs of the market The ELA Standards are updated on a regular basis. Through a network of experts and logistics professionals, the Standards are checked against the needs of the market. www.elalog.org We offer Logistics Professionals A Standard of Competence An ELA certificate recognises competences and validates logisticians’ experience at different levels.

I had several promotions during my career. With my level of education, I could not progress enough. It was virtually impossible for me to get a higher management position. Getting the ESLog certificate enabled me to grow further in my job and, ultimately, to become a member of the management team.” www.elalog.org Testimonials Romeo Dimitriu ESLog (RO): “With the ESLog certificate, I can better understand logistics opportunities, and solve logistics challenges, for my company. We have a lot of suppliers and customers abroad. Having a European certificate gives me more confidence to communicate within my supply chain network.” www.elalog.org Testimonials François Caussil ESLog (FR): “Being ELA Certified facilitates the exchanges and understanding with my clients, having the same definitions behind the words used avoids misunderstandings and a waste of time. It gives to my firm recognition and visibility of our skills on the European market as well as on the French market. It will help me to recruit new consultant with the right skills.” www.elalog.org Where Austria Poland Belgium Portugal Czech Republic Republic of South Africa Finland Romania France Russian Federation Georgia Shanghai Germany Spain Indonesia Sweden Italy Switzerland Netherlands United Kingdom www.elalog.org About ELA ELA, the European Logistics Association, is a federation of 30 national organizations, covering almost every country in Central and Western Europe.
