Parker College of Business to host IANA Applied Research Competition
The Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management in Georgia Southern University’s Parker College of Business has partnered with the Georgia Ports Authority and TCW Inc., to host the first-ever GS-IANA Logistics Applied Research Challenge. The competition is made possible through support and funding from the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA).
The GS-IANA Logistics Applied Research Challenge will allow junior and senior undergraduate logistics students to gain professional development experience and a deeper understanding of the intermodal freight transportation industry.
The Fall 2019 business case for which students will create solutions will be developed by the Georgia Ports Authority and TCW Inc. leadership teams, along with faculty from the Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Students will earn valuable exposure to highly relevant, important and complex business challenges faced in intermodal supply chains, and it will offer an opportunity for student teams to research, solve and present solutions to a panel of judges comprised of industry executives, government officials and logistics faculty members.
