Georgia Tech Opens Supply Chain & Logistics Institute Office on Savannah Campus

Apr 21, 2015 | Atlanta, GA

The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL) at Georgia Tech, the world’s largest supply chain and logistics research and education enterprise, recently opened an office on the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus. The Savannah office location will offer tailored workforce development courses, online training, supply chain short courses and executive seminars.  Additionally, the office will serve as a mechanism for dialoging with local businesses regarding challenges that can be addressed as student group projects or research engagements.

“With ongoing record-breaking port activity, the deepening of the channel, continued strong growth in global trade, and the widening of the Panama Canal, Savannah is poised for a continued run of strong supply chain and logistics employment growth,” said Tim Brown, managing director of the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. “Furthermore, with the decommissioning of more than 3,000 military personnel each year, Savannah is well-positioned to provide a solid workforce to meet these needs. The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute is doing its part to prepare the region for continued success by providing a means for the workforce, at all levels, to continually enhance their supply chain and logistics skills.”

In the coming months, the SCL Savannah campus will be offering programming related to sourcing and procurement, international logistics and compliance, and lean logistics, among others. SCL enables supply chain professionals, businesses and governments to transform complex supply chains and trade corridors to improve logistics performance by providing education, innovation and solutions for global and domestic supply chains.
