TMS in the Classroom

Cloud-based TMS software provides tools needed to achieve transportation optimization


Preparing the Next Generation of Logistics Professionals

Over the past few years, there’s been a lot of buzz around a talent shortage in supply chain management. Help is available in the form of a TMS software program at leading supply chain schools. 

Some employers see a gap between what they are looking for in terms of skills and knowledge compared to what universities and other educational outlets are providing students. The gap expands when it comes to transportation technology skills and first-hand experience.

In this episode of Talking Logistics, Dr. Shashank Rao, the Jim W. Thompson Associate Professor of Business at Auburn University discusses how Auburn is enhancing its supply chain program with technology.

As a member of MercuryGate’s MercuryGate University Program, students have free access to a leading transportation management system (TMS). They use the TMS Software as a part of their coursework.

Why did Auburn join this program? How are students using the TMS software? What has been the feedback from students and employers? What’s next when it comes to incorporating technology as part of the Auburn University supply chain curriculum?
