Practitioner Talk Series – “The Awareness and Importance of Logistics and Transport”
16 March 2017

First of the faculty’s Practitioner Talk Series, students were exposed to the trends and practices related to the logistics industry as shared by professionals and veterans alike.

Associate Professor Dr Choo Wou Onn, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Business and Information Science, welcomes the guest speakers to UCSI.

Dato’ Abd Radzak Abd Malek, President of CILT Malaysia, shares what the industry is looking for in their employees, amongst others.

Muhamad Noridham, Head of OSHA for Cold Chain Network, emphasises on the vital role a well-managed supply chain plays in getting the right products to the right place at the right time.

Adrian Tan, Senior General Manager of Multi-Trans and CEO of Megalift, advises that the three keys to success are people, passion, and never acting on baseless assumptions.

Ahmad Inamul Hasan A Zaidi from Young Professional CILTM shared his personal journey in obtaining a chartered membership and the benefits that come with it.

 
UCSI University’s Faculty of Business and Information Science kicked off the first of its Practitioner Talk Series where industry leaders and experts will be regularly invited on campus to foster dialogue amongst the University community. Organised by the faculty’s logistics department, the first talk was themed ‘The Awareness and Importance of Logistics and Transport’ to provide students with insights to issues and trends related to the logistics industry.

Guest speakers included Dato’ Abd Radzak Abd Malek, who serves as the International Vice President for CILT in East Asia as well as the President of CILT Malaysia. A veteran who has worked for KTMB – the main rail operator in Peninsular Malaysia – for 37 years before retiring, he remains an active member of the Malaysia Logistics Council for the Ministry of International Trade and Industry. He now applies his experience in co-ordinating and supporting CILT activities in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia and in leading the regional growth strategy in East Asia.

Having prepared students well on what to expect upon graduation and the qualifications that may help them rise in the ranks, he ended with some words of encouragement, “This industry is fast moving and work may be stressful but careers in logistics are rarely boring. Advancement opportunities are plentiful and it can even be a stepping stone into the field of international business.”

UCSI has enjoyed a rewarding relationship with CILTM since 2014. A CILT membership has become a universal benchmark for quality and confidence in every continent. So it was great news indeed UCSI had the distinction of being the first private university to be granted professional accreditation for its BA (Hons) Logistics Management and MSc in Logistics Management.

Students also got to hear from leaders like Muhamad Noridham, Head of OSHA for Cold Chain Network – a company that specialises in temperature controlled supply chain solutions and was the first in the country to obtain the Halal Logistics Certificate; Adrian Tan, Senior General Manager of Multi-Trans, one of the pioneering companies in Malaysia’s logistics service industry, and the CEO of Megalift; as well as Ahmad Inamul Hasan A Zaidi from Young Professional CILTM.
