2GO, the logistics arm of the Aboitiz Transport group, over the weekend tied up with the Foundation of the Society of Fellows in Supply Management, Inc (SOFSM) and the Jose Rizal University (JRU) to offer an undergraduate course on Supply Management.

The Bachelor of Commercial Science Major in Supply Management will focus on the four aspects of supply management: sourcing and procurement, manning and replenishment, logistics operations and customer service. It can be taken as a certificate course to be completed in two years or a full degree in four years.

“The goal of 2GO is to lower the total supply chain cost in the Philippines. This can become a reality when the public is educated on how to maximize the industry,” 2GO president and chief executive Sabin Aboitiz said.

2GO will also offer scholarships and job opportunities for the course graduates.

“There is a dearth of Supply Management professionals because there is no academic training available. Most professionals learn the industry through experience or training seminars while they are on the job. It is really high time for a course to be developed on supply management that provides theoretical, political and practical training for students,” SOFSM president Romeo Recto said.

JRU president Dr. Vicente K. Fabella described the course as timely, considering the great demand for logistics expertise among businesses.
