MercuryGate University Prepares Students for the Future
With the predictions of a growing job market in supply chain fields and a spike in transportation majors, it’s not surprising that more businesses are looking for ways to prepare today’s students for future jobs. The MercuryGate University program was created in part to address the growing demand for logistics and supply chain professionals, and to give faculty and students the opportunity to practice real-world scenarios with using a transportation management system (TMS.)
The MGU program began as a result of ongoing feedback from our customers, who saw the need for a service that would provide the future supply chain leaders with a better understanding of transportation management technology. The idea being that exposure to technology could help prepare them for a supply chain career. MGU is arming them with an arsenal of best practices and hands-on training as they graduate from college.
As more higher learning institutions are adding transportation courses to their curriculum, the MGU program provides the MercuryGate TMS to participating faculty and students for free. Through labs, videos, boot camps, and lectures students can master the technical skills they need to be successful in their careers.
