Industry awards for logistics graduates
Two RMIT University graduates were recognised at the 2012 Victorian Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australian (SCLAA) Awards.
James Dimovski, a graduate of the Bachelor of Business (Logistics and Supply Chain Management), received the Future Leader Award.
This award recognises the leadership qualities and potential of young logistics practitioners.
Mr Dimovski works at Toll Holdings as a National Sales and Marketing Analyst.
He currently oversees the company’s tendering processes, manages multi-million dollar accounts and is championing the CRM system implementation.
Priyani Withanaarachchi, a graduate of the Master of Business (Logistics Management), took home the Industry Excellence Award.
This award is given to practitioners who have made a significant contribution either to the industry or to their organisations.
Ms Withanaarachchi is Head of Supply Chain at Honda Australia.
Her achievements include the introduction of quality assurance throughout Honda's supply chain functions; implementation of a dual sourcing model which resulted in a 50 per cent reduction in lead time and a 53 per cent reduction in costs; and the introduction of a freight equalisation model leading to lower transport and logistics costs.
The SCLAA is Australia’s largest association for Supply Chain and Logistics SME's, professionals and practitioners.
Priyani Withanaarachchi receives the SCLAA Industry Excellence Award.
