    Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics Competency Model

    The competency model framework for Transportation, Distribution and Logistics was developed through a collaborative effort involving the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and leading industry and labor organizations.
    To ensure that the model reflects the knowledge and skills needed by today’s Transportation, Distribution and Logistics workforce, ETA worked with DOT and industry stakeholders to update the original Model. Completed in February 2014, the updated model features a new Tier 5 providing background on specific transportation sectors and a reorganization of Tier 4, as well as several updated competency areas.
