|Project Title:||A Market Intelligence Study on Enabling Technologies for Industries related to Logistics & Supply Chain Management|
|Hosting Institution:||LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)|
|Abstract:||One of the challenges to Hong Kong logistics and supply chain community is an immense rise in demand as well as competition amid rapid growth in China and expansion of other logistics ports in the region. Logistics and supply chain community including service providers, industry users, technology vendors and researchers is prompted to technology advancement for an enhancement in capability and efficiency in supply chain management. SMEs in Hong Kong due to resources constraint have difficulty in equipping themselves and many will count on the government to help them stand up to the challenge.
Technology advancement can provide a leap to efficiency but 'relevancy' is the key to all developments. This Project on Market Intelligence is to empower logistics and supply chain community with industry needs and technology capabilities to enhance production and adoption of relevant technologies in the industry. The project will also facilitate LSCM Centre in the formulation and implementation of technology roadmap with an aim to strive logistics and supply chain technology development in a demand-led market-driven direction.
The Project is going to leverage LSCM R&D Centre's industry program and strategic partners' network to maximize the coverage. Project results will be disseminated broadly among the stakeholders hoping to create a momentum in the logistics and supply chain community where technology demand will derive supply and technology supply will answer to the call of demand.
