Promotion of the supply chain & logistics industry as a profession and acknowledgement of its highest achievers are essential to address skills shortages.
The University of Sydney’s Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) celebrated its 30th birthday on Saturday 15 May.
Although impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, 130 friends and guests came together in the stately confines of the University of Sydney’s Holme Building Refectory to mark the gala event. Over three magnificent hours, ITLS reflected on its many achievements over 30 years, and acknowledged the outstanding contributions of its academics and students.
Post-dinner there was the presentation of awards, where outstanding students were recognised for their exceptional academic achievements.
On behalf of SCLAA, Prof Ben Fahimnia presented the SCLAA Excellence Award to Ms Qiaoyan Yu for obtaining the highest academic achievement in the Master of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. SCLAA has sponsored this generous annual award since 2017.
Reflecting on an incredibly successful three decades of operation, ITLS looks forward to the coming years in which it will continue to be an exemplar of thought leadership in transport, logistics, and supply chain management. ITLS values the contributions of SCLAA to its outstanding achievements and will continue its collaboration with SCLAA in the years to come.
Prof Ben Fahimnia also discussed the crucial role of industry associations like SCLAA in promoting supply chain excellence with the Secretary of Transport for NSW, Mr Rob Sharp.
SCLAA continues to support and encourage excellence in supply chain and logistics with the 2021 Australian Supply Chain & Logistics Awards – to be held at Crown Palladium in Melbourne on Friday 26th November.
The call for submissions is now open. These annual Awards are celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, and the SCLAA is proud to have hosted them for the past 20 years. ν
