22 February 2022 — The National University of Singapore (NUS) has renewed its 2019 agreement with ST Logistics to continually upskill its workforce through the University’s proprietary All-You-Can-Learn (AYCL) initiative, a customisable training programme for businesses to upskill and reskill their workforce through industry-relevant courses that have been curated from 17 NUS faculties and schools.
Since 2018, NUS has trained 215 senior and middle management staff from ST Logistics in key growth areas, ranging from Artificial Intelligence to Supply Chain Management.

The agreement was signed by Professor Susanna Leong, Vice Provost (Masters’ Programmes & Lifelong Education) at NUS and Dean of the NUS School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (NUS SCALE), and Mr Loganathan Ramasamy, Chief Executive Officer of ST Logistics, during a learning festival organised by the logistics corporation and the Supply Chain Employees’ Union (SCEU).
The ceremony was witnessed by Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Education; Ms Gan Siow Huang, Minister of State for Education; Mr Richard Lim, Chairman of ST Logistics; and Mr Thomas Knudsen, Managing Director of Toll Group.
