The Asian Institute of Supply Chains & Logistics (AISCL), formerly the Li & Fung Institute of Supply Chain Management & Logistics, was established in 2006 with a generous donation from the Victor and William Fung Foundation Limited. It brings together scholars from different faculties specialized in supply chain management (SCM) and logistics to study specific areas and to create synergy through research collaboration. The institute’s missions are to conduct academic as well as applied research in SCM and logistics, to facilitate the advancement of technological know-how for SCM theory and the logistics industry, and to promote knowledge transfer between academia and industry. Special emphasis is placed on bridging the gap between the academic and industry problem solving.
We are committed to bringing (1) excellence to the local and regional logistics industry and supply chain management, (2) versatility to logistics and supply chain services providers, and (3) adaptability and sustainability to professionals, who enable the business community to stay agile in the efficiency-driven, and highly competitive business world.
We are very happy to have the industry leaders including Cathay Pacific Airways Limited, China Merchants Group, Kerry Logistics, and Pacific Air Limited, joining the Fung Group to support the Institute. In the years to come, we aim to become a world-recognized leader in logistics and supply chain management research with special emphases in Asia. The Institute will play the role of a key driving force in the development of logistics services and supply chain management in Hong Kong and the rest of Asia. This is to ensure that we in Asia will stay competitive and prosperous. We will continue to strengthen our cooperation and collaboration with industry leaders to spearhead forward-looking best practices, and to set examples for others to follow.
