March 10, 2021: Invigo Software (VIZRU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tamil Nadu Apex Skill Development Center for Logistics (TNASDCL), a skill development initiative of Tamil Nadu Skill Development Corporation (TNSDC) and Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC).

This partnership will jointly design, develop and impart skill training to several thousands of students by partnering with 60+ universities and leverage their existing training facilities. VIZRU will provide training aids, including course curriculum and further assist trainees to find suitable placements. VIZRU will also offer its training expertise and training partners to train students on information technology, software applications, and contemporary technologies such as Zero code platforms and/or similar such technologies that are focused on the 12-sectors of logistics to make them employable.

The main objective and goal of this partnership is to facilitate employable skill training to the youth and prepare them for the various functions within the 12-logistic sector of (1) Land Transportation, (2) Courier Express Services, (3) Cold Chain Logistics Solutions, (4) Warehousing (Storage and Packaging), (5) Air Cargo Operations, (6) Port Terminal, ICD’s and CFS Operations, (8) Inland Waterways and Marine Services, (9) Rail Logistics, (10) Liquid Logistics, (11) Supply Chain, (12) E-commerce, and (12) EXIM Logistic-Freight Forwarding/Custom Clearance.

Giridharan Ramasubramanian, managing director, Tamil Nadu Apex Skill Development Center for Logistics (TNASDCL) said, "The MoU is a blueprint for strong collaboration with the aim of enhancing the technical skill of youth and creating an employable pool of skilled manpower. This partnership between TNASDCL and VIZRU will result in employment creation as students will be trained to industry standards. It is our endeavour to identify employable youth, then train and upskill them on specific technology and logistic skills to make them industry-ready. Keeping this approach in mind, our tie-up with VIZRU is a significant step in the right direction.”

Ramesh Mahalingam, CEO, VIZRU, said, “India is investing heavily to build and upgrade its logistics and infrastructure. It is rapidly becoming a global supply chain and hub for manufacturing. This exponential growth means the logistics industry in India alone will need 25 -30 million additional skilled manpower in the next 10-years. With the recent emphasis on “Atmanirbhar Bharat“(Make in India), this demand may increase further.”

Under this initiative, VIZRU will conduct training for participants that want to upskill their knowledge in the areas of logistics through short term courses, workshops, contact classes, seminars, webinars, eLearning, entrepreneurship creation, and mentoring. The training will cover the necessary skills, tools, and technology knowledge required to work in the Logistics industry. In addition to the above training, selected candidates will also get an opportunity to join an apprenticeship program with VIZRU to work on various Zero-Code application development projects focused on the supply chain and logistic industry.

On successful completion of the course, TNASDCL and VIZRU will issue a joint co-branded certification either in a digital or physical form duly signed jointly by MD of TNASDCL, the CEO of the certifying agency LSC (Capt. TS Ramanujam) and the CEO of VIZRU.
