ASCI History

Operating in Australia as a not-for-profit since 1964, ASCI has fostered the professional learning in globally recognised best practice supply chain management. ASCI has grown the end to end supply chain management community over the years, merging into its fold the Logistics Association of Australia (2015); the Alliance for Supply Chain Innovation (2015), the Lean Network Australia (2016), and the Australian Chamber of International Trade (2017). As majority shareholder for the SMART Conference and the SMART Awards, it rebranded the conference and awards under its rebrand to Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI) as the Professional Accreditation Body to reach its mission to professionalise Supply Chain Management in Australasia.
