The University of Wollongong’s Dr Cedwyn Fernandes joins the judging panel of the forthcoming Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA).
Dr Cedwyn Fernandes, chair of graduate studies at the University of Wollongong in Dubai, has joined the judging panel of the forthcoming Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA).
The ceremony, which takes place at the Fairmont Hotel in Dubai, is being held on Tuesday 29
May to coincide with the forthcoming Material Handling Show.
"With the region now poised to become a key integrated logistics hub, the SCATA awards are timely," said Fernandes. "The awards will highlight the outstanding performers in supply chain and transport in the region. Companies within the industry can then benchmark against the award winners, which will raise the overall standard of the supply chain and transport industry."
Organised by the ITP, publishers of Logistics Middle East, the ceremony is expected to attract 250 of the leading names from the Middle East's cargo, freight forwarding and shipping sectors.
"The winner of each SCATA award will be truly world class organisations or individuals. I will be looking for evidence as to how each of the nominees has consistently outperformed the others in the industry," added Fernandes, who is currently overseeing the introduction of a post-graduate degree in logistics at the University of Wollongong in Dubai.
The SCATA judging panel also includes Michael Proffitt (CEO of Dubai Logistics City), Issa Baluch (CEO of Swift Freight International), Captain Mansoor Ghafoor (CEO of STALCO Group), and Dr Kanak Madrecha (projects manager of Kanoo Group).
