Don't just take our word for it

Being an Associate Member of CIHT (AMCIHT) brings many benefits, such as access to CIHT events of interest and relevance to my role in the industry, weekly email newsletters. I always find Transportation Professional magazine a great source of information as to what is happening in the industry. In addition to this, I have access to a fantastic members' benefits discount area - CIHT Options - and have saved a lot of money using this service. I would definitely recommend anyone in the transport industry to become a member of CIHT.
