The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) hosts the annual Student Day with missions to raise young people’s concern about the current issues of logistics and transport in Hong Kong, and to encourage them to develop their future career in related industries. This year, the competition was held online in March amid the pandemic.
A total of seven teams formed by students from various tertiary institutions including The University of Hong Kong (HKU), The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) took part in this competition. Each team was allocated a transport and logistics-related topic on the event day. Participants were required to analyse and formulate solutions for the problems under a time constraint, and present their ideas to the judging panel through a video.
A five-member HSUHK team consisting of Ms Cheuk-kiu Ho, Ms Man-qing Woo, Ms Cybi Fan, Mr Ming-ho Li and Ms Sarah Wong from BBA-SCM programme was coached and supervised by Dr Eugene Wong and Dr Helen Ma. With their excellent presentation with impressive analyses on the topic entitled “Will the rail service be the best choice for the residents in Tung Chung”, the HSUHK team was awarded the 2nd runner-up. The champion and the 1st runner-up went to the HKU team and the HKUST team respectively.
