Miss CHUNG Ka Man (Carmen), who is a graduate student of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), received the champion of CILTHK Logistics & Transport Student Final Year Project Award 2018, an open competition by The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Hong Kong (CILTHK).
Carmen, who gradated from BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management (LEM) programme in 2018, won the competition with her final year project titled “A Taguchi-based Cold Chain Packaging System for Managing Multi-temperature Food Distribution in Multi-national Third-party Logistics Companies”, which was supervised by Dr KL Choy.
The project made use of the Taguchi-based experiment settings to optimize the hybrid cold chain packaging for handling multi-temperature food distribution. Due to the growth of perishable food e-commerce, the proposed method is valuable in providing a reliable and effective temporary storage environment during the last mile delivery. The proposed method was also validated through the case study in multi-national logistics companies, and thus the work is deemed to be feasible and practical for the industrial uses.
The competition is an annual event organized by the CILTHK, and is open to all final year undergraduates who are studying CILTHK accredited programmes with their individual thesis or group project appraised at Grade A. It aims to celebrate and highlight undergraduate students contributing the Best Practice Development in the field of Logistics or Transportation by recognizing their outstanding academic work.
Congratulations again to the winner and we are very proud of our student for the excellent project work and performance.
