The Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LCL) on 27 April joined the international Supply Chain Day, an initiative hosted across Europe and overseas in cooperation with the German Bundesvereinigung Logistics (BVL).

The Supply Chain Day aims at bringing together players from the logistics sector with events hosted in over a dozen EU member states as well as Bahrain, China, Russia, Turkey, South Korea, Switzerland and Ukraine. The Luxembourg event was organised by the Cluster for Logistics. Participants were able to visit companies active in the logistics sector in the country as well as taking part in networking and information sessions.

LCL Associate Prof. Steffen Klosterhalfen spoke at a special “The Logisticians of Tomorrow” event hosted by the Young Professionals Logistics Luxembourg (YPL2). In his speech, he presented the LCL and its Master in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, which will welcome its first cohort of 17 students for the 2017-2018 academic year. He outlined the career paths that the Master programme can open, highlighting the importance of the logistics sector for the Luxembourg economy and the LCL’s mission to provide first-class education in cooperation the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The YPL2 event also featured industry speakers and created the opportunity of open discussion and exchange.

Recognising the LCL’s mission to be a valuable partner for logistics companies based in Luxembourg, the LCL also attended the “E-commerce and dedicated logistics” open day event at Transalliance, an international operator in the transport and logistics sector with its head office in Luxembourg. Since its launch, the LCL has actively taken part in supply chain events and initiatives with the ambition to contribute to this fast-moving sector through education and research.
