RLC Foundation logo

The purpose of the Royal Logistic Corps Foundation is to promote professional excellence within the Corps, so that our soldiers and officers can be the best military logisticians possible.

The RLC Foundation team is based at HQ 101 Log Bde, Wellington House, St Omer Barracks, Aldershot. GU11 2BG.

We plan and coordinate all Foundation activity and work as part of the Regimental Headquarters of the RLC.

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.
