Gaining Flexibility and Agility in the Workforce

The explosive growth of ecommerce and the complexity of omnichannel distribution
have created new and formidable challenges for the logistics industry. In recent years,
logistics companies have invested in various types of technology to help them keep pace
with emerging market trends and maintain a competitive edge. Technology solutions
— from shipping and tracking systems to RFID and robots to warehouse management
systems — have helped these organisations control costs, improve productivity, and
deliver superior service to customers.

Having successfully leveraged automation to achieve new levels of operational efficiency,
logistics companies are now turning to technology to better understand and optimise
their most valuable resource: their employees. This white paper discusses the crucial
role that people play in the supply chain, presents strategies for building flexibility and
agility into the workforce, and explores how metrics and data-driven insights can help
organisations optimise the workforce for better business outcomes.

Transportation and Major Events Workshop

University of Malta organised a 4 hour workshop on Saturday 7th November 2015 for the students reading for the Higher Diploma in Logistics and Transportation Management.

The workshop was coordinated by Ms. Joany Grima, international events manager and events management lecturer at Wellington Institute of Technology New Zealand.

The scope of the workshop was to explore the delivery of major events, their objectives and also to hypothetically coordinate a major event such as the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM)

CHOGM has been selected as a timely study case given the fact that Malta successfully hosted the event at the end of November.

CILT Malta was very pleased with the students’ commitment and positive reception of the workshop. Their engagement inspired motivation for future organisation of such activities.

The workshop was sponsored by CILT Malta and Malta International Ship-owners Association.
