Programme will enable students to experience practitioner-based learning through immersive training and mentorship, ultimately gaining relevant experience for their future career in logistics.

China, 13 September 2016 -YCH Group, Asia Pacific's leading integrated end-to-end supply chain management and logistics partner has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Jiangsu Vocational College of Business (JVCB), China's top educational institution for logistics and supply chain management, to jointly develop and implement a training programme to equip students with the right skill sets in order to meet the growing needs of China's growing economy.

Coupled with academic and classroom based learning provided by JVCB, the programme will feature 30 percent of practitioner-based training, supported by YCH Group's proprietary training program, experienced trainers, industry experience and operations, information technology solutions and training venues.


Established in 1956, JVCB is a leading college in China for logistics training, with 1,000 of its 7,000 students specialising in supply chain management. As a reputable institution with well-developed training facilities and experienced teaching professionals, the employment rate of its students is high at 98 percent, with 40 percent of its students coming from other parts of China.

Mr Cao Jin Hai, Nantong City Gangzha District Mayor said, "Nantong fully supports this collaboration, as logistics is an important sector for China's growing economy. As China continues to contribute and participate within the global economy, new set of skills are required as our logistics professionals seek to upgrade and upskill. I believe that the graduates of this programme would not only get a head start as they enter the industry, but also have the ability to take on a strategic mindset in their daily work."

Ms Ren Feng, Secretary of the Party Committee, Jiangsu Commerce and Trade Career Academy said, "We are pleased to collaborate with YCH Group. Besides being an experienced and successful supply chain management services provider, YCH has customers across the region, including established and well-known multi-national corporations, and is well-positioned to work with us to address the market needs for more logistics professionals."

As a socially responsible employer, we are focused on servicing our world-class clientele, while at the same time creating employment for key talents and upskilling them constantly to grow with the company."

To help fuel the growth of the region's supply chain industry, YCH nurtures talent through a variety of educational platforms including scholarships, internships, content development and various practitioner-based learning programmes. This collaboration marks YCH's eighth overseas EduRise collaboration with educational institutes. Prior initiatives were started in Tianjin, Chengdu, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, India and Malaysia.
