Digital Logistics & Transportation Workshop

The Digital Logistics & Transportation (DLT) Workshop will prepare students for careers in logistics and transportation in the context of recent trends in digital business.

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) defines logistics as the process of planning, implementing, and controlling procedures for the efficient and effective transportation and storage of goods including services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption to meet the needs of customer.

This definition includes inbound, outbound, internal, and external movements.

Learn about all aspects of transportation and logistics through direct interactions with our board of executives from over 30 organizations in trucking, rail, retail, consulting and financial services. This workshop will consist of weekly seminars featuring industry guest speakers, and networking and internship opportunities with our sponsoring organizations.
