In an ever-changing market, finding the right trade and a fitting training program might seem like an impossible task. Enter the Supply Chain And Logistics Academy (SCALA), which was founded by Singapore's foremost supply chain professional, Dr. Robert Yap. Dr. Yap took over the reins of his father's transportation company in 1977 and transformed it from a fledgling company at risk of losing their whole business to the only local logistics conglomerate that spans the Asia Pacific, with plans for further expansion towards the west.


Helmed by Dr. Robert Yap, YCH Group is the only company who is willing to open its facilities for industry trainees to learn from their 24/7 operations and gain a hands-on experience with their technologies.​​  He founded SCALA in 2016 because of his strong belief in “teaching a man to fish” and his lifelong motivation to raise the bar for the industry.

At SCALA, we are committed to providing the highest quality experiential workplace learning focused on supply chain leadership, technology and sustainability. Our programs are flexible and meet the needs of our customers' business and their learners. Our trainers and mentors are the best in their field. So if you are ready to roll up your sleeves, learn a new trade and make new friends - get in touch today.

Being a B2G organization, SCALA works closely with governments of countries, and also with major companies around Singapore and around the world, offering them the opportunity to upskill their nationals in the industry. Noting that Singapore has rose up the ranks to top the Logistics Performance Index (LPI#1), foreign governments are interested to learn how they too can emulate that. By offering our Executive Programs and our Jump-On-Board (JOB) Attachments, we are able to provide a very unique experience in achieving that.  SCALA actively establishes closer ties with international government bodies so that we can increase opportunities to offer to our Corporate Network.


On the B2B front, SCALA works with companies to help them hire talent from other industries and trains them to perform in logistics and supply chain roles. To mitigate the risk of hiring someone from outside the industry, Workforce Singapore (WSG) offers salary support for 3 to 6 months to the companies and this fund can be used to digitalise operations or up-skill talent. Some of the clients we work with include
