1 APRIL 2022The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Singapore, in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) Asia, has launched a Top Management Roundtable on Digitalising Singapore’s Logistics and Supply Chain Industry.


The Roundtable, targeted at the highest management levels, aims to give small and mid-size enterprises as well as multinational corporations in the logistics/supply chain industry in Singapore the transformational vision and operational strategies on the opportunities and challenges of digitalisation. This is crucial in a time of sharply increasing international competition and an ever more volatile and sensitive economic environment.


The pioneering programme was opened by Senior Minister of State for Transport and Patron of CILT Singapore, Mr Chee Hong Tat at the TUM Asia Campus today. Speaking at the opening session of the Roundtable was also Enterprise Singapore’s Executive Director Law Chung Ming, who gave advice to companies on starting and scaling digitalisation.


Participating in the six sessions of the Roundtable programme, which is spread over two months, are industry thought leaders, experts and leading practitioners from around the world. A distinctive feature of the six Roundtable sessions is the theme of ‘Applied Logistics’ i.e., apart from the expert presentations and peer discussions, there are site visits and the sharing of operational experiences from global logistics organisations.


This Roundtable series forms part of CILT Singapore’s concerted efforts and strategic thrust to forge opportunities and synergy between Government agencies, private corporations and the international academia to fortify Singapore’s position as a Global Hub and its global competitive advantage, as well as to enhance the skills, competencies and professionalism of the Singaporean core workforce.


Among other educational initiatives to help advance Singapore’s workforce in the Supply Chain industry, CILT Singapore has forged collaborations with PSB Academy in its Diploma in Global Supply Chain Management programme; SkillsFuture-subsidised e-learning modules with Temasek Polytechnic; Certified Digital Logistician programme in partnership with the National University of Singapore’s Institute of Systems Science; CILT Singapore’s pioneering Supply Chain Professional Development self-paced e-learning modules and Asia’s first Certified Professional Logistician programme.


Apart from Digitalisation, CILT Singapore’s twin strategic focus on Sustainability has seen the Institute organised four webinars to date since September 2021 on Decarbonisation in the Air Transport, Land Transport and Logistics sectors, which have attracted strong local and international interest.
