CONGRATULATIONS are in order to Datuk TS Abd Radzak Abd Malek for being the first Malaysian to hold the prestigious post of international president of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

Radzak helmed CILT’s Malaysian chapter for over a decade. CILT offers internationally-recognised qualifications in transport and logistics leading to a chartered membership that is the equivalent to an internationally-recognised degree in Transport and Logistics.

Radzak, a veteran of the Malaysian transport and logistics industry, started his career as a KTMB (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad) station manager, rising to become KTMB’s managing director in 2008. He is also a member of the independent advisory panel on safety to the Transport Minister and on the board of advisers to the Malaysia Institute of Transport.

In an interview about the presidency, Radzak said he will draw on his experience as a logistician and an administrator to help guide CILT through future challenges and changes. I’m sure Malaysians will join me in being proud that a kampung boy has risen to such great heights in the international arena. Syabas.
