Supply Chain Challenge (SCC) 2023
The Supply Chain Challenge (SCC) was launched in 2012 by Singapore Logistics Association with the key objectives:
- Promote greater awareness and understanding of the logistics industry amongst tertiary students
- Facilitate new entrants into the industry via internships, leading to full-time employment in the logistics industry upon graduation.
The annual competition is co-organized by Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) with good support from the 5 local polytechnics and ITE as well as logistics companies.
The SCC exposes students to practical problems in the industry and gives them a learning platform to practise their knowledge outside of their classrooms. Participating companies will contribute current, real-life business challenges for the students to work on and also dedicate time to mentor their eventual selected student team. Finalist teams will be mentored by logistics professionals from mentor-companies for a period of six weeks – applying their logistics knowledge to offer a feasible solution.
We are looking for mentor companies as well as sponsors for next year SCC 2023. If you wish to explore, please email: [email protected].
Next Year SCC 2023 theme is as follows :
Gaining Competitive Edge through Green Supply Chain Management
With ever increasing competition in the global scene, reducing cost, increasing service quality and delivery as well as agile supply chain management will not be enough for logistics companies to stay competitive. This is especially so when external stakeholders are more and more requiring an increased focus on sustainability. Companies have to look for modern strategic manners to gain sustainable organization and competitive advantage. Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) adopted as a new innovative strategic tool would help companies to align themselves to this new demand, not only gaining competitiveness but also promoting the companies environmental and financial performance.
GSCM embraces the process of addressing environmental concerns into conventional supply chain management incorporating the principle of 4R1D (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reclaim and Degradable). GSCM can be achieved by considering environmental issues at the purchasing, product design and development, production, transportation, packaging, storage, disposal and end of product life cycle management stages.
