Logistics Students Connected to the Professional World


One of the most well-connected programs on campus is the Logistics Management program in the Business Division.  Logistics is simply the business of making things move: products, packages, information and even people. It's a process used by businesses and industries across the globe. The Logistics program not only trains students for a career in Logistics- a big part of the program are the relationships with area businesses that use Logistics to do business: Amazon, GAP Inc and LifeWay are just a few examples.

Recently, Vol State logistics Students toured the LifeWay Christian Resources Distribution Center in Lebanon. LifeWay General Manager Rodney Cathey and Outbound Transportation Manager Brian Heflin provided a two-hour tour highlighted by LifeWay's pick-to-light and pick-to-voice warehouse systems. Rodney is a Vol State Adjunct Instructor and a Logistics Advisory Board Member. Brian is a Vol State Logistics AAS Graduate and a Logistics Advisory Board Member.
