Bandung, 2 July 2021.  The Logistics Engineering Program of Study held a general lecture titled Logistics in Practice which was opened by the dean of the Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (FPTK UPI); Dr Iwa Kuntadi, M.Pd.


This public lecture was held to interpret the logistics perspective in the field. The speaker Dr Nofrisel, S.S., M.M., CSLP., ESLog is the Chairman of the Expert Board of the Indonesian Logistics Association (ALI). In principle, activities during a pandemic, such as the one we are experiencing today, are extremely "profitable" for the logistics industry. Logistics activities handle a variety of shipping tasks.


The issue with current logistics activities is that there is no binding system and one of them lacks an International Hub Port. The position of the International Hub Port plays an important role in the development of highly competitive power. The existence of an International Hub Port will provide justice for Indonesian logistics industry players and allow them to compete effectively with international logistics industry players.


The balance of goods distribution in Indonesia is still unevenly distributed between the West and the East, resulting in high prices in the eastern part of the country. Human Resources (HR) that are competitive must be developed comprehensively. There are several keys to logistics success in practice in the industrial world including partnership, operational excellence, technology, network, people competencies.


To achieve efficient logistics activities, logistics is closely related to technology. Collaboration is a major factor in logistics success. The world of logistics, particularly the logistics industry in its various forms, necessitates a large number of human resources to be filled by various university graduates. This is a future challenge in the logistics sector.


Logistics Engineering of FPTK UPI prepares logistics graduates for a golden age in which logistics graduates are in high demand by Indonesia's growing logistics industry. (Vina Dwiyanti)
