Fifty-four transportation professionals achieved the designation of Certified Transportation Professional (CTP) by the NPTC Institute, the educational and professional certification arm of the National Private Truck Council. The graduates were honored during a ceremony at the NPTC Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition, held April 27-29 in Cincinnati. Since the CTP designation first was introduced in 1993, nearly 600 fleet and transportation professionals have added CTP after their name.
“These new Certified Transportation Professionals have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to understand complex operational and regulatory issues, identify and evaluate potential costs and savings, and develop systems and practices that best meet their company’s transportation needs and objectives,” says Gary Petty, NPTC president and chief executive officer. “The CTP designation is a benchmark of excellence earned by a special few, but available to any fleet or transportation specialist willing to make the necessary commitment of dedicated effort.”
This year’s winner of the CTP Top Graduate Award was Robert J. Boyich, vice president of sales and marketing for CPC Logistics. Boyich has more than 30 years of experience in truck transportation management, participated in the NPTC Fleet Management Institute this year, and earned the highest score on the February 2008 CTP Examination.
