TAPA APAC Inspires NUS MSc Students with TAPA Standards & Resilient Supply Chain Management
Disruptions in global supply chains have become the one of the top concerns for companies due to its far-reaching financial and operational implications. To ensure resilience and sustainability, it is crucial to address various challenges, including rising cargo crime, insider threats, lack of visibility, low security frameworks, and the lack of technological capabilities and data insights. It is essential for students to gain practical knowledge and insights to keep up with the constantly evolving landscape of the supply chain. Recognizing this need for the industry and future generations, the Transported Asset Protection Association Asia Pacific (TAPA APAC) was invited by National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MSc SCM) Professor Goh Puay Guan to share the importance of supply chain resilience and industry standards in the global environment.
The presentation by Mr. Tony Lugg, Chairman of TAPA APAC, provided students with the opportunity to learn directly from industry expert. With his wealth of industry experience, Mr. Tony Lugg, Chairman of TAPA APAC, delivered an engaging and informative presentation on Supply Chain Resilience, Security, and Control Tower. With his experiences and knowledge, Tony shared real case studies of the various threats faced by supply chains, and stressed the importance of implementing security measures in combating crime and protecting valuable assets. TAPA’s role in the industry stems from its global Standards which have been developed to ensure resilience and integrity of supply chains. One key aspect that he emphasized was the importance of risk assessment in the supply chain management. Risk assessment comprehensively evaluates potential risks and vulnerabilities in the supply chain, especially at this point of time where risks are continuously evolving.
Through this engaging session, TAPA APAC empowered the students with practical knowledge of TAPA Standards to be able to safeguard future businesses and organizations which they would be part of in time to come. The talk gave the students a glimpse into the dynamic and ever-evolving world of the supply chain industry, inspiring them to bear a resilient mindset in their supply chain, where they can make a significant impact on global business operations.
Together, TAPA APAC and NUS have taken a proactive step in shaping the future of supply chain resilience, emphasizing the importance of security, sustainability, and collaboration in protecting our global networks.
