Mr Quek Keng Liang, SLA chairman, was on hand to give the symbolic kick-off, followed by Mr Thomas Sim, First Deputy Chairman, who gave the opening address. Assoc Prof Tan Yan Weng, Head of the Logistics and Supply Chain Management programme presented the guidelines for the chapter authors who are industry experts from the logistics and supply chain industry. Also in attendance was Ms Samantha Su, Director (Services and Biomedical), SPRING Singapore and several members from the SLA.
