Our Method

Engage with professional organisations and academia to coordinate and expand existing Accreditation Certification and Educational Courses for the benefit of RLC soldiers and officers across all RLC Trades.

  • Provide a focus for The RLC’s professional excellence and engagement with external logistics organisations from industry, academia, professional bodies and the professional media and facilitate engagement with them.
  • Promote exchanges of ideas, experiences and concepts between RLC soldiers and officers and the appropriate civilian/commercial organisations.
  • Promote engagement of RLC soldiers and officers in the Foundation’s activities and especially their interaction with industry and showcase the capabilities and qualities of RLC soldiers and officers to the civilian logistics community.
  • Coordinate ‘thought leadership’ in military logistics by ensuring the Corps remains abreast of leading edge commercial logistic practices.

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021.

Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19.
