The CSCR Supply Chain Forum, School of Business and Economics (SBE), UMT, in collaboration with Center for Management Development (CMD) and Global Research and Facilitation Council (GRFC) organized a workshop on “Operations Logistics”. It was attended by more than 30 supply chain professionals representing different organizations.

Rizwan Ahmed, Vice President, GRFC, discussed the importance of logistics. He said that the business community should foster fast results by manipulating rapid and express logistics which save time and cost. Moreover, proper planning and scheduling, selection of good service providers, training of staff and complete documentation are the essential elements for managing the cost component during international trade transactions.

Ijaz Yusuf, Director CSCR, UMT, introduced the guest speaker Albert Aaldert Jager, Director, aa!jager – Consulting, Netherlands. The guest speaker spoke about the scope and need of supply chain management in recent times. He added that the stake for different players is extremely high, making it imperative for the partners including suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and customers to behave as if they are part of the same company. Thus, scope of supply chain management is vast. This way only can they enhance performance significantly across the chain. He also gave some tips on how to achieve supply chain excellence and the challenges and opportunities faced by the organizations regarding this aspect. 

The interactive workshop concluded on question and answer session. Ijaz Yusuf wrapped up the session and thanked all participants for attending the workshop and making it more interesting through exchange of professional experience and learning.

it may be noted that Albert  has been working  in international supply chain management and logistics. After having worked for over 30 years (1979 – 2010) in management positions in supply chain management and logistics in well known organizations like Nestle, Flora Holland, Avery Dennison and Yamaha Motors, he started his own company in 2010 as interim and project manager. Currently, he is also an associate consultant on supply chain solution in relocation case studies. From mid 2011, he is working as  interim operations director in an international logistics service provider.

Earlier, the event started with the recitation of some verses from the Holy Quran by Ahmed Babar, President OSCC, UMT. Abiha Syed, Research Associate, CSCR, UMT, welcomed all participants.
