In today’s job market, your students need every advantage that they can get – not just a college degree, but an understanding of real-world problems and appropriate solutions. At MercuryGate, we’ve been solving transportation problems for leading shippers and third-party logistics companies since 2000. Not only were we one of the first to offer transportation software in a SaaS model, but we now support over 90,000 users – 75% of which are logistics service providers with their own customers – a day on our applications.
Now we’re taking on a new challenge with our “MercuryGate University” program. Designed to promote the use of leading edge logistics tools in classrooms across the country and train tomorrow’s supply chain leaders, MercuryGate University puts the full suite of MercuryGate Transportation Management Systems (TMS) —including our route optimizer— into the hands of students and teachers for modeling and solving realistic business challenges.
We’ll provide our software to you, free of charge, to use with your students or for your own projects. We’ll even provide training and help you configure the software to support your syllabus.
“Earlier this morning, I was offered an internship with Accenture for supply chain management position. At the interview, I talked about the tutorials we have been assigned in this class and how we are learning about incorporating such a system in the real world. This set me apart from the other candidates and became one of the main ways that I was a competitive and allowed me to get the internship!”
