Achieving superior productivity and growth, and understanding how to best manage cost-efficient,environmentally-friendly modes of integrated transport is of vital importance to a nation's strategic interests. Yet in an eraof increasing sensitivities toward greenhouse gas emissions and the `greeningÃÂ¿ of business many countries lackeducational facilities which are dedicated to understanding multi-modal transport logistics and sustainable supply chainsthat can extend to international trading partners. This paper explains in detail a proposed centre of excellence concept thatwas developed for the New Zealand Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CiLT). By facilitating intensivebusiness collaborations and engaging industry directly with teaching specialists, consultants, and researchers it isanticipated that Centre stakeholders would benefit from: 1) industry-relevant, world-class applied research and problemsolvingexpertise that will directly add value to the NZ national and local economies, 2) shared decision support facilitiesthat bring together industrialists, academics, consultants, and other specialists to work together on the most pressingexport trade-related supply chain, logistics, and transport challenges and opportunities, 3) improved, industry-relevantqualifications and programmes that make extensive use of new and innovative teaching and learning methods and whichare tailored to the countryÃÂ¿s international trade, transport and logistics sectors. This research brings together the views ofindustry, education providers, students, and governmental stakeholders. It has been informed by first-hand experience, bythe literature, by international visits and by acknowledged best practise.
