The Humanitarian Logistics – Asia Pacific Education Centre was established in November 2012 as a collaborative effort between the Kuehne Foundation and The Logistics Institute – Asia Pacific.

Hosted at the TLI-Asia Pacific, the Centre is a first in the region and is guided by its founding concept – "from/by Asia for Asia" by providing a unique platform for bringing awareness and fostering collaboration between regional academics, government agencies, non-profits, universities, students and the commercial sector in this space through education, research and outreach efforts.

A message from Karl Gernandt, Board of Trustees Kühne Foundation:
"The Kühne Foundation is very proud to venture into Asia and open its first overseas office in Singapore as a joint-venture with NUS and TLI–Asia Pacific. The field of humanitarian logistics is so far an untouched subject in the region and the response for education, training and applied science is astonishing." Chairman


A message from Professor Tan Eng Chye, Chairman, TLI–AP at NUS, and NUS Deputy President (Academic Affairs) and Provost:
"With Singapore’s global connectivity, pro–business environment and international talent pool, Singapore is well poised to also serve as a humanitarian response hub for the region for organisations to plan, formulate and coordinate their humanitarian outreach or relief efforts in Asia. We are proud to be a part of this initiative." Chairman
