New occupational standards created for Supply Chain roles


MISSISSAUGA, Ont.– Through its current Supply Chain Links project, the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council, with help from CSA Group and with significant contributions from stakeholders, recently created four new occupational standards for the supply chain sector. They bring to 48 the total number of occupational standards now available from the Council.

The new documents are for the following occupations:

  1. Expediter
  2. Logistics Analyst
  3. Logistics Planner
  4. Rate Clerk

Occupational standards can be used to develop job descriptions and job-performance tools, plan education and training programs, identify career paths and more.

At an average of 8 to 12 pages in length, the Council’s standards are short, concise and easy to use. Each includes: a position description; required qualifications, in terms of education, training and related work experience; a list of the tasks performed by employees in the role; tools and technologies used on the job; a catalogue of the knowledge, skills and personal attributes needed to succeed in the position; and, an essential-skills profile, said the CSCSC.

All of the Council’s supply chain occupational standards are available here.
