Moratuwa University wins YPC competition

Team SATA from the University of Moratuwa won this year's Young Professionals' Challenge (YPC), a case study competition open to students and young professionals in the logistics and transport sector.

YPC is organised by the Young Professionals' Forum (YPF) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Sri Lanka.

This year's case study was for a company proposing a pineapple processing and export operation with funds from an international collaboration partner based in the Middle East.

The Challenge called for each team to act as consultants to the company.

The 'consultants' were asked to evaluate various options, including location of the processing operations and to address various transport and logistics issues for local and export sales operations.

Overall, it was a realistic case study that could have been for an actual company proposing agribusiness processing and export operations.

YPC 2014 attracted 17 proposals from young professionals and students from various institutes including the University of Moratuwa, Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College and Kotelawala Defence University and organisations involved in transport and logistics.

The five finalists were Aster, SATA and Diligent Diamonds from the University of Moratuwa, Dynamic Four from the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University and the Fabulous Four from the CINEC Maritime Campus.

Each team had to carry out a business analysis, write a report and make a presentation of their proposals.

They also had to answer questions from a panel of six judges about their presentations.

Anjalika Perera, Sameera Prasani, Thilini Ranatunga and Aravinda Dissanayake were the members of Team SATA, the YPC 2014 winners.

The team was mentored by Ms Anuja Fernando.
