Since the emergence of physical distribution/logistics management as an applied discipline in the early 1960s, the search for requisite skills has dominated the concerns of professionals in this new field. While there had been some earlier attempts to organise educational approaches in this field, the first real national and cohesive attempts were launched with the founding of the Annual Transportation and Logistics Educators' Conference. The enthusiasm of the participants and the heavy focus of the first conference proceedings on this issue marked a really strong inertia towards the search for, and development of, status in this field of management concern.
