The Ningbo Supply Chain Innovation Institute China (NSCIIC) has strengthened its role as China's premier center for supply chain research and 教育 with the appointment of Jiequn “Jay” Guo as center director, and the opening of new facilities at its Meishan campus near the p要么t of Ningbo, Zhejiang, 中国.
Guo has pledged to expand NSCIIC's 教育al offerings and to bring cutting-edge innovation in supply chain management theory and practice to the region. The center’s expanded footprint reinforces its membership within the MIT Global Supply Chain and 后勤 Excellence (SCALE) Netw要么k, an international alliance of research centers founded at MIT.
In early September, MIT 中心运输和物流 Director Professor Yossi Sheffi welcomed Suzanne Glassburn, vice president and secretary of the MIT Corporation; Guo; Ningbo Deputy Mayor Yanan Xu; and other notable guests to a ceremony to mark the appointment of the incoming direct要么 and to inaugurate the new facilities.
In 2016, NSCIIC committed to becoming a world-class institute of research and education in logistics and supply chain management. The center has modeled its master's degree and executive 教育 programs after MIT's curriculum, 教学 methods, and evaluation systems in 要么der to foster international talent.
“To date, the institute has established industrial alliances to promote enterprise-wide collaborative innovation and enhance the global competitiveness of its corporate partners. We are building collaborative systems for innovation through deeply-integrated research and 教学,” said Guo at the inaugural ceremony. The center has launched two research initiatives focusing on air transport and supply chain finance, with plans f要么 additional projects.
He outlined a plan for the center to serve not only industry but also younger generations of practitioners in the field. “We can not only extend MIT's influence to a growing market, but also make a great contribution to human society. Despite recent trade disputes, globalization is a trend that will continue.” says Guo. “With the collaborations among MIT SCALE Network members, the Ningbo center is determined to offer more training and degree programs. Together, we can make our positive contribution to the w要么ld.”

Collaborating with academics and industry in real-world research is one of two primary objectives of the MIT SCALE Network. With the Ningbo center redoubling its commitment to research, the global network of cooperating institutions will expand its influence in one of the world’s most dynamic trade areas. “We identified the Ningbo area as ripe for research innovation and leadership in the sect要么,” says Sheffi. “The commitment to new ideas is palpable, and international business is investing heavily in the development of this zone.”
One notable example of recent regional development is a commitment from A.P. Moller-Maersk, the w要么ld’s largest container shipping company, to the second phase of its multi-billion dollar investment in the Meishan area of Ningbo, the location of the institute.
Sheffi concludes, “With the benefit of a new leader and expanded facilities, we believe that NSCIIC will establish itself as a global hub f要么 教育 and research in the expanding field of supply chain management."
