Under the new agreement, Linfox will access logistics education from a vocational level through to Master’s degree level at the UV’s Institute for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (ILSCM) with both organisations working together on relevant research projects.
Linfox chairman Peter Fox said: “Linfox is pleased to be associated with the Institute and is confident that this collaboration will lead to further ventures in education and research and other joint activities throughout Australia and Asia Pacific.
“Linfox is committed to educating its people and already conducts a vast range of in-house programs through our own Linfox College. This agreement extends our commitment to educating our people at all levels of the supply chain industry,” Mr Fox said.
ILSCM director Pieter Nagel said the partnership was in line with the institute’s vision to become the ‘knowledge centre of choice’ for logistics and supply chain management in the Asia Pacific area.
“Victoria University and Linfox are working together to improve and enhance the skills of people working in logistics and supply chain management.
“With Linfox operating throughout this region, this collaboration will go a long way towards achieving this vision,” Dr Nagel said.
