Georgia and Atlanta are critical supply chain and logistics hubs, and the industry will play a key role in the future of the region.  This article from Georgia Trend magazine quotes MS SCE Faculty Director Alan Erera and Georgia Logistics Innovation Center Director Page Siplon, and outlines some of the conditions that have led to the growth of the logistics industry in Georgia and what lies ahead.

This year, +Georgia Tech students in our MS in Supply Chain Engineering program helped the Santa-bearded Prof John Bartholdi load packages for the 2013 Great Package Race.  Meant as a simple demonstration of the complexities of international freight logistics, the race pits four package carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS) in a race to deliver an identical package to a far off location.

This year, the packages raced from ISyE in Atlanta to Santa's workshop in the far north of Finland... DHL accomplished the feat in 4 days.  That's great, but of course Santa has to manage the outbound distribution system to millions of locations in a single day.  Clearly, that'll take a little magic... or some crowd-sourcing.

Happy Holidays!

Here they are, the 24 members of the 2014 MS in Supply Chain Engineering cohort starting this Fall semester at Georgia Tech!  Along with our transfer students studying abroad until Spring, we have 48 students in the 12-month degree program this year.

We are looking forward to great things from this group!

The State of Georgia plays a critical role in supply chain logistics, particularly for states in the US South. We are fortunate to have a state Center of Innovation for Logistics, located at the Georgia Tech Savannah Campus

The Logistics COI sponsors many interesting events: you may be interested in this upcoming webinar on ecommerce fulfillment using store shelves as warehouse inventory...

Last night, we held the first Alumni Career Networking Night for our Georgia Tech MS in Supply Chain Engineering Students.

Four alumni returned to campus to provide the current students advice on finding and landing a job, including tips for building an effective resume, handling interviews, and networking with professionals in the supply chain field.  

The alums have positions at The Home Depot, Americold Logistics, Cisco Systems, and Cummins, and we look forward to similar career success for the new students!

New students: if you are looking for job-seeking advice and events, it's a good idea to follow and join events sponsored by the Georgia Tech Business Network - GTBN.

They sponsor roughly 8 events each year, designed to connect the Georgia Tech community with the Atlanta business community. Keep an eye on their schedule!
