LSC-CyFair student receives internship from Aries Freight Systems
In a new partnership with Aries Freight Systems and Lone Star College-CyFair, student Kayla Riley received an internship position at Aries for aspiring logistics management students.
“This internship was important to me not only for the experience, but the knowledge I gained by being exposed to the business,” said Riley in a press release. “In my opinion, an internship in the freight-forwarding industry of logistics is a great place to start because they are the middle man.”
Aries specializes in door-to-door logistics services, including air and ocean export and import, freight forwarding, customs brokerage, time-definite ground freight services, project cargo, warehousing, packing and crating services, trade compliance and customized logistics services.
“In freight forwarding you work with agents, carriers, customers, manufacturers, basically all areas of logistics. This helps when having to go to class and learn about these different areas,” Riley continued. “Aries in particular was a great experience because they do domestic, international, oversized cargo and project freight forwarding, so my exposure was not limited and I could maximize my learning experience.”
Upon completion of her internship at the end of May, Riley was offered a full-time position at the Houston company.
“I decided to turn [the offer] down because my family is taking over a company in Birmingham, so I am moving there to help with business development,” she said.
In addition to the Aries internship opportunity, LSC-CyFair offers logistics students opportunities through the student Supply Chain Industry Distribution Organization club. For information, visit lonestar.edu/logistics-management-dept or call 281-290-5233.
