Next-generation transport provider Cloud Logistics of West Palm Beach, Florida recently disclosed its new partnership with the University of Tennessee’s Knoxville-based business school by lending its transportation management systems (TMS) for student use free of charge.
With the initial package delivered and two training sessions under their belts, Haslam College of Business students have enthusiastically adopted the company’s toolkit in their course work. Haslam College of Business enrolls approximately 5,500 students.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand from both students wanting to enter our program as well as from organizations wanting to hire our highly capable graduates,” Randy Bradley, marketing and supply chain management professor at UT-Knoxville, said. “To be able to enhance our students’ supply chain knowledge with tangible technical skills that result from hands-on experience with a leading supply chain technology solution like Cloud Logistics will make our students even more valuable in the marketplace.”
The affiliation is proving mutually beneficial, Cloud Logistics’ CEO Mark Nix said. Cloud Logistics strives to simplify orders, communications, and transportation management with its patent pending workflow architecture.
“Partnering with one of the top supply chain management schools in the world is an obvious way Cloud Logistics can contribute our modern technology to the growth of supply chain talent both here and abroad,” Nix said. “We’ve been incredibly impressed with … how quickly they’ve embraced our technology to further their studies and research.”
Cloud Logistics operates branch offices in Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta, Georgia, as well as hubs in Russia, Australia and South Africa.
“The graduates from the supply chain and logistics program at Tennessee have always been well trained and very prepared to hit the ground running when they start their new career, ” Nix said. “We look forward to working with students and faculty at the University of Tennessee for years to come."
