KGW Group Berhad, a Malaysia-based logistics services provider has via its wholly-owned subsidiary KGW Logistics (M) Sdn Bhd, joined forces with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) to establish an Enterprise Trade Hub.

KGW said in a statement on Monday that this collaboration is designed to empower students with a hands-on learning experience in the world of logistics and e-commerce.

KGW, through this collaboration, stands as a commercial entity that offers an ecosystem for live training.

The facilities provided by KGW at UTHM include specialized rooms such as a warehouse, parcel collection room and more.

These spaces allow students to experience the actual workflow and operations of a real-world logistics system.

Beyond theoretical knowledge, this partnership fosters students’ practical understanding on the logistics system.

KGW said the firm is committed to supporting universities in nurturing students, emphasizing hands-on training and live practice.

The meticulously crafted learning modules are designed to replicate real-life scenarios, ensuring students are industry-ready upon graduation.

“Our hands-on approach not only differentiates us but also aligns with our commitment to nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs,” KGW managing director Roger Wong said.

With UTHM based in Johor, KGW emphasizes that Johor will spearhead the aforesaid project.

It said the collaboration sets a benchmark for educational institutions and highlights Johor’s commitment to be at the forefront of technological and educational advancements.

It is noted that the Enterprise Trade Hub will function as a learning center for import and export trade via online platforms like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, specifically targeting the United States market.

By working closely with the KGW Group, it said UTHM students will gain an understanding of global supply chain management and e-commerce ecosystems.

Listed on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia, KGW is principally involved in logistics services as well as the warehousing and distribution of healthcare-related products and devices.

Under logistics services, the group offers ocean and air freight services and freight forwarding services.
