Universities, colleges develop programs to prep students for the supply chain jobs of the future
Figuring out how best to help today’s students—whether at the undergrad, graduate or continuing education professional level—develop the skills that will keep them abreast of the latest supply chain developments is a high priority for the leaders of the College-Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE), says president Bill Ferrell, Fluor Professor of Industrial Engineering & Associate Dean of the Graduate School at Clemson University.

Ferrell and his CICMHE colleagues, Elif Akcali, Associate Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Florida, and Phil Kaminsky, Chancellor's Professor & Chair of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at the University of California, Berkeley will share some of the latest developments in these education programs at MODEX 2016. On Monday, April 4, the trio will present “Preparing Today’s Students for Supply Chains of Tomorrow,” in Room B211 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. as part of the Supply Chain Education Summit. The presentation is sponsored by CICMHE.

Learn more about benefits of horizontal collaboration at MODEX Supply Chain Education Summit
Eliminating the barriers that exist within today’s physical supply chain to create a universal, open logistics community that mimics the Internet is evolving into more than just a vision. Ways to convert the concept of the Physical Internet into reality are being actively studied by researchers around the world.

Among them, Dr. María Jesús Sáenz, Director of the Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC) in Zaragoza, Spain, has been investigating ways that corporations in different industries might work together to mutually reduce their supply chain costs and improve their competitive advantage through “horizontal collaboration.”

Latin American Spanish Translation of U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics
The U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics, originally released in January 2014, has been translated into Spanish for distribution in Central and South America. The translation is published on www.MHLroadmap.org, and replicates the original 67-page Roadmap report and action plan. The document provides a framework to help the industry identify the logistics and supply chain disruptors that can be turned into action plans to develop core competencies needed in the U.S. between now and 2025.
