The SLA CEO Night on 07 December 2018 was created for members to get together with government agencies, education institutions and partners in the logistics community. It was a crowd and full house at Enterprise Singapore’s Bugis office. Graced by Mr Satvinder Singh – ESG Assistant Chief Executive Officer, close to 130 representatives and CEOs as well as guests were present. Amongst them were also colleagues from the Logistics Alliance. 

Thank you, Mr Singh, for addressing the crowd with your words of exhortation to transform the logistics sector. 

Welcoming the Guests

In his welcome address, Mr Kay Kong Swan – Chairman highlighted that while there are many emerging disruptive innovations that change the way business operates, the real difficulties are business competitions outside Singapore and the ability to create value for customers.

On transforming businesses, Mr Kay announced that SLA members that are currently enrolled on “hive” – Highly Interconnected and Vibrant eTrade, would receive a 2-year free subscription of CALISTA™. The services offered by CALISTA™ range from online ocean freight booking, to filing regulatory security requirements to the Customs authorities in Canada, Japan and the United States.

Commemorating Council Members 2016/2017

The Guest of Honor, Mr Satvinder Singh presented mementoes to Council Members in appreciation of their unreserved and invaluable contributions during the last 2016/2017 term. Thank you for your camaraderie and devotion to the works of the association.  The new term will certainly ride on the commendable efforts of the past.

Food and Chat

It was both a joyous and fruitful evening.  Complementing the warm fellowship and friendly atmosphere was the spread of Nyonya treats with local favorites that include laksa, satay and kueh pie tee, as well as the quintessential celebrative drinks in many forms – chilled, cold or hot. The crowd lingered on ….
