R&D Focus

To develop core technological competencies and enhance efficiency in the logistics and supply chain industries, LSCM has undertaken industry-oriented research projects involving businesses and universities. R&D projects funded by the Centre range from the use of RFID in applications for manufacturing shop-floors, retail and distribution use, freight tracking and locating (indoor and outdoor) to monitoring personnel in hospitals, as well as electronic lock (E-lock) technology to secure transshipment cargo containers. LSCM's technology roadmap is demand-driven with an emphasis on enabling industries to innovate and move up the value chain. This roadmap focuses on Six major areas:


  1. Infrastructure Information Technology System

  2. Internet-of-Things (IoT) and RFID Technology

  3. Location-based Service (LBS) Technology

  4. Logistics and Supply Chain Analytics and Applications

  5. Supply Chain Security (Authentication / Logistics Security)

  6. Financial Services & e-Commerce Technology
