What is the Supply Chain Challenge++ Industry Track?
The Supply Chain Challenge++ Industry Track (SCC++) is an extension of the case competition opened to students to gain exposure to the logistics industry. This track is open to all persons and organisations who wish to apply their product or services to address real-life supply chain challenges faced by participating logistics industry players. For more information on the institution track of SCC++, please visit www.sc-challenge.com.
This Industry Track is co-organised by the Singapore Logistics Association (SLA) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), and GeoWorks (Singapore Land Authority).
The intent is to connect solution providers with the logistics industry players to accelerate innovation thinking and foster partnerships. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with the industry players to further develop their innovative solution into a viable product that could be potentially adopted by the industry players to address their challenges.

The term Movers has long been associated with the transportation of household effects or office equipment from one location to another. The horrors of the moving industry are certainly well documented, from fraud and deception to irresponsible and disreputable fly-by-night operators. These stories are enough to drive fear into the most discerning and seasoned consumers.
In 1982, our founders decided that something had to be done and Shalom Movers was formed to breathe new life into the industry, to give peace of mind and to be the name you can trust for moving and storage requirements.
Even with the progress of technology, the moving industry was relatively untouched by it, yet by embracing change and growing with disruptive innovation, the role of Shalom Movers has evolved to encompass other areas of moving, forwarding, shipping, logistics, E-commerce logistics and much more.
Shalom Movers offers the highest standard of service and you can be sure you are getting value for what you pay along with the peace of mind for all your moving and storage requirements. We work with schools such as the Institute of Technical Education, and the Institute for Adult Learning, an institute of SkillsFuture Singapore, to train our staff to be better mentors. Being a certified Institute of Technical Education (ITE) On Job Training Centre (OJTC), BizSafe 4 Certified, and Lean Management trained, our staff is trained to carry out your move in the safest and most efficient manner.
Shalom Movers believes in investing in our people today to stay ahead of the game tomorrow. As such, much time is spent on personal growth and learning and development. Shalom Movers is also working towards becoming a training organisation accredited under the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications System (WSQ) and has used the Skills Framework for Logistics to identify current and relevant skills to design learning programmes for its staff. In encouraging our staff to embrace technology, our staff has attended the SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace programme which helped build digital confidence in those who are not technologically savvy. Do check out our Learning and Development page to find out what we have been up to.
We are an integral part of Singapore’s Transport & Logistics Industry and we strive to better serve our trusted domestic moving customers as we grow our international reach with the same conviction and drive to go the extra mile. https://shalom.com.sg/
