Supply Chain Specialist in a future
My main goals are to improve logistics cost, create export optionality and to benefit strategic positioning of TT's supply chain.
I have learned after years of working in TT that there is an obvious lack of local professional participation within medium and long term logistics plannings. Currently such planning is formulated then executed by foreign specialists as we lack the required qualifications and experience with international export operation. This situation creates unnecessary constraints within the Logistics department.
After graduating, I expect to participate actively in establishing new Logistics strategies for developing a longer-term supply chain for TT beyond the existing the single bi-lateral border crossing of copper concentrate to China.
TT must establish viable alternate export routes for moving a material volumes of concentrate and for improved gold recovery, pricing, export risk mitigation and market diversification. Exporting to countries beyond China is critical for TT's future profitability.
Additionally, as export volumes increases (with the commencement of production from the underground increases 2 or 3 times of today's volume) the ongoing trucking of copper concentrates must be replaced by rail.
Therefore, as seasoned logistician who aspires to be a Supply Chain Specialist, I understand the importance of connecting TT's mining exports to lucrative markets. I believe, I can be valuable participant in defining logistics strategy of TT, and inspire my colleagues.
