Default Help in Career in Logistics and Supply Chain

Hi guys!

I am a fresh graduate (Diploma in International Logistics and Supply Chain Management) who completed NS recently. Currently, I have no intentions of going to uni due to financial status and academic results. However, the Earn and Learn programme from SkillsFuture has attracted me due to their benefits.

I contacted them and they returned to me with a list of companies, which I am to select 15 of them and they will send my resume to them. However, I am currently spoilt for choice as I am not familiar with them. Can I have suggestions (both positive and negative) for which companies to choose? Also, I'd like to know if the Earn and Learn programme is beneficial to me as a fresh graduate.

If you studies about logistics and supply chain, the best bet is to go for forwarder if salary is not an issues to you.

Oil & gas/phem can earn more.
Do consider to study about project management or take up PMP, can earn more.

If you are keen on learning how logistic works in real life you can try some of the well known company that make use of their logistics to save/make money, eg IKEA, DELL.

But is still good to start with forwarder and then specialized on certain area, eg Airfreight, Oceanfreight, operation, project and etc. Then move to shipper or company to help them with their logistics needs.

on your list you can consider,

Kuehne + Nagel (KN)
Rohde & Schwarz Asia Pte Ltd

Dont expect marvellous pay. I have been to few world top forwarders, I can tell you that.

Default 3PL Management trainee program

Hi. I am pursuing a career in logistics. Anyone knows how is the MT program in 3PL like? I was told after the program, will be promoted to either supervisor or Am position. Is it true that if you stay in ops side for too long(e.g 3-4 years), it will be hard for u to switch to office enviroment? Any brother/sister can offer their advice? Thanks.

NTUC/grocery logistics
Kuehne and Nagel
From this thread, I'm gonna consider these 2 as well.
Rohde & Schwarz Asia Pte Ltd
Anyone more familiar with the industry can help me have better insight on the department's culture? And also, which one did you get into in the end?

You can include Toll and CEVA. They are reputable.

NTUC Fairprice should not be top choice as they are not strictly a supply chain and logistics company.

Do check the location of these companies as most of these are either in the west say Tuas Jurong or East such as Changi, Loyang etc.

Default Federated Cargo Line Pte Ltd

I'm from Federated Cargo Line Pte Ltd. It is not a good company to join as the workload are exceeding the benefits given. Please re-consider your choice when apply for the job.

First of all, congratulations limechiang on your graduation! I totally understand you right now and your fear of choosing the wrong company to work in. One of my first jobs was as a logistician at IKEA, and I liked it so much. There I found out about everything in the practice and not while sitting and reading the books like I used to do in University. I was so skilled after I quited the job that I began to work alone and then with my friend as a logistic company. I thought the most difficult thing would be drawing and controlling all the documents, but after my friend showed me I realized it takes a minute to fulfill a waybill. So easy, fast, and no stress at all. Now we face so little trouble and already have 10 employees. So, good luck to you!
