HOMEGROWN logistics company YCH Group on Thursday said it would set up a new education academy to train 600 graduates and mid-career professionals over the next three years.
It will train fresh graduates with hands-on skills to better prepare them for employment within the supply chain and logistics industry. YCH plans to absorb up to 20 per cent of these individuals into the company's operations.
The academy will also train professionals making a mid-career switch to the supply chain and logistics industry, as well as invite small and medium enterprises to use programmes at the academy to train their employees.
The academy will be housed in YCH's new corporate headquarters, Supply Chain City, in Jurong West. To be completed next year, the facility will incorporate the world's first automated storage and retrieval system that is integrated with ramp-up warehousing, as well as high-tech supply chain management equipment such as drones, robotic arms and automated guided vehicles.
YCH announced this as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations.
