WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, Tuesday, March 29, 2016 – Cloud Logistics, a leading innovator and provider of next-generation transportation management systems (TMS), has partnered with the Haslam College of Business and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, by donating its award-winning TMS to the school for the use of its students.
“There has never been a greater need for the development of the next generation of supply chain talent,” said Randy Bradley, professor in the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. “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. 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 as they will be ready to make an impact with their future employers on their first day on the job.”
Cloud Logistics has already deployed the solution, complete with realistic data, for the University of Tennessee as well as completed two initial training sessions. Students are actively using the TMS as part of their classwork and feedback so far has been outstanding.
Mark Nix, CEO of Cloud Logistics added, “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. We’ve been incredibly impressed with the team at the University of Tennessee and how quickly they’ve embraced our technology to further their studies and research. 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 and the Cloud Logistics software will give them additional experience using a modern TMS. We look forward to working with students and faculty at the University of Tennessee for years to come.”
