The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at The University of Sydney Business School, GS1 Australia and apicsAU have announced a collaboration to share expertise, foster research and introduce students into the industry’s premier professional supply chain community.

apicsAU is a non-profit, membership community providing leadership and innovation, education and training and professional development for the Australian supply chain, procurement and logistics industry.

apicsAU will endorse the GS1 e-procurement certification within The University of Sydney Business School’s Logistics and Supply Chain Management postgraduate programs and offer students a professional membership to its community.

“This is a very welcome partnership that will provide significant benefits to our students, which is expected to be attractive to employers,” said Professor David Hensher, Director, Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at The University of Sydney Business School.

Dr Jyoti Bhattacharjya, Lecturer in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Learning and Teaching Innovations Coordinator at the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, The University of Sydney Business School, says the collaboration underscores the quality of the GS1 e-Procurement Certificate and provides an excellent opportunity to develop a long term partnership within a preferred professional industry body.

Terry Papadis, Manager, Education and Training at GS1 Australia, says apicsAU’s endorsement of the GS1 e-Procurement Certificate is a strong industry credential.

“This collaboration supports the vision and strategic objectives of all parties. GS1 Australia is committed to promoting apicsAU as a preferred professional supply chain community to students who undertake the GS1 Certificate through the University of Sydney Business School and we look forward to extending the collaboration with apicsAU,” said Terry.

According to Dr Pieter Nagel, CEO, apicsAU the collaboration is just the beginning of a complete suite of collaborative offerings for tertiary institutions and their students and graduates of supply chain degrees.

“apicsAU is the Premier Professional Supply Chain community in Australia and as such is geared for long term career partnership with its members.
