One of the most critical challenges facing the logistics professionals during the 2000s will be the need to meet the skill requirements in logistics for the various levels of management There is an established literature that deals with skill requirements for logisticians. However, existing research rarely take into account a critical variable: measurability. The literature of actual practice in logistics certificates/licenses is rather sparse. This exploratory study utilized the concept mapping methodology to offer an important first step along with the path to more effective logistics licensing/ certification. The results suggest that certain components of logistics skills are more important than others depending on the level of management and assessment format preferences also differ at each assessment level. Setting up a well-recognized official certification/licensing system can become the driving force to meeting such career challenge.
