LSC-CyFair students learn from logistics professionals
Lone Star College-CyFair (LSC-CyFair) students interested in logistics technology and who are members of the college's student Supply Chain Industry Distribution Organization (SIDO) recently took part in two events.
First, students toured Houston Transtar, a partnership of The Texas Department of Transportation, Harris County, the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County and the City of Houston. Transtar is responsible for providing transportation management and emergency management services to the Greater Houston region.
Students then participated in the Council of Supply Chain Management Professional Houston Roundtable Mentor Day. Serving as mentors were Mediterranean Shipping Company Sales Executive Brian Zirkle and Glacier Foods Director of Compliance and Logistics Glenn Lutton.
Students heard about the challenges of the food distribution industry and toured the Glacier Food Distribution Facility prior to a luncheon at the Houston Hobby Center. The luncheon included networking opportunities with supply chain industry professionals and a presentation and discussion with a team of supply chain recruiters on the industries job outlook, interview skills, salaries and job opportunities.
SIDO was established with the goal of enabling students to have greater connections to the supply chain industry and gain a better understanding of the world of logistics technology, especially through interaction with Houston-area logistics professionals and organizations.
Additionally, LSC-CyFair offers an AAS degree in Logistics Management as well as several certificate programs.
