The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering organized a series of Logistics Best Practices knowledge sharing projects. These have secured grants of more than HKD2.5 million funding from the SME Development Fund of the Trade and Industry Department of HKSAR Government (Project Reference No: D08 001 007 and D10 001 004).
Logistics Best Practices projects are coordinated by Dr. Tommy K L Choy, Associate Professor of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. Their objective is to assist Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to generally understand and learn logistics best practices in order to enhance their operational effectiveness. Through these projects, logistics experts and various SME and logistics associations in Hong Kong gathered to disseminate best practices in their areas of work in order to share experience, optimize operational workflow, and generally apply logistics engineering systems to improve business operations.
A project seminar titled “Information Technology-integrated Logistics Strategies Best Practices” was successfully held on 26th October 2011 to 350 owners and management staff of SMEs. Such projects have attracted attendance of over 1,300 owners and management personnel of SMEs. For further information, visit the project website: http://www.smelogistics.org.hk.
