Abstract


  • Achieving superior productivity and growth, and understanding how to best manage cost-efficient,

    environmentally-friendly modes of integrated transport is of vital importance to a nation's strategic interests. Yet in an era

    of increasing sensitivities toward greenhouse gas emissions and the ‘greening’ of business many countries lack

    educational facilities which are dedicated to understanding multi-modal transport logistics and sustainable supply chains

    that can extend to international trading partners. This paper explains in detail a proposed centre of excellence concept that

    was developed for the New Zealand Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CiLT). By facilitating intensive

    business collaborations and engaging industry directly with teaching specialists, consultants, and researchers it is

    anticipated that Centre stakeholders would benefit from: 1) industry-relevant, world-class applied research and problemsolving

    expertise that will directly add value to the NZ national and local economies, 2) shared decision support facilities

    that bring together industrialists, academics, consultants, and other specialists to work together on the most pressing

    export trade-related supply chain, logistics, and transport challenges and opportunities, 3) improved, industry-relevant

    qualifications and programmes that make extensive use of new and innovative teaching and learning methods and which

    are tailored to the country’s international trade, transport and logistics sectors. This research brings together the views of

    industry, education providers, students, and governmental stakeholders. It has been informed by first-hand experience, by

    the literature, by international visits and by acknowledged best practise.
