Accreditation & Affilliations
The staff of the Centre for Logistics Excellence sees the company’s vision within two spheres:
The Management and staff of the Centre for Logistics Excellence are committed to the degree of excellence the organisation wishes to achieve in the specialised market of Supply Chain Management and Warehousing.
There’s a Chinese proverb that says “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.”
The Centre for Logistics Excellence (CLX) recently launched the Warehouse Classroom, a unique concept within the supply chain training industry. At CLX our Warehouse Classroom has been designed with “hands-on” thinking in mind and is fully equipped with learning aids relevant to the experience. These include a warehouse management system, barcode & scanner, racking & shelving, pallets and much more all configured to show the importance of integration between systems, labelling, documentation and material handling equipment. This allows the students the opportunity to learn using industry standard equipment found in their own warehouses.
Concepts in the course material are brought to life. We are great believers in making learning fun and as such the Warehouse Game has been designed to lead students through a real life end to end warehouse process from receiving, inspection, put away, picking, staging and despatch functions. The emphasis of the game is to illustrate the interdependency of each role, the importance of correct documentation and how the warehouse function fits into the bigger supply chain picture.
The Warehouse Classroom also provides a safe environment for students to play, ask questions, and make mistakes without any risk to the business environment. Challenging the status quo and brainstorming new ideas to improve current working environments is also encouraged.
The Beer Game is a simulation game created by a group of professors at MIT in the 1960s to demonstrate a number of key principles of supply chain management. At CLX the Beer Game has been modernised and using either laptops or tablets, up to sixty- four teams all playing in the same room - have the opportunity to play against each other representing various operations in the supply chain, namely the retailer, wholesaler, distributor and factory.
Regardless of the level occupied by the student within the organisation, co-operative learning is fun, creative and stimulating. It encourages students to apply themselves and take an active role in their skills development.
