Supply Chain Management

“Many students and their parents do not think about logistics and supply chain as a career path – because most of us don’t spend too much time thinking about how everything we use on a daily basis gets to us. It’s an industry that requires people, energy and solutions, and always will. There will forever be logistics opportunities, and ITGO is thrilled to be working with NCCC to tell this story.” – Craig Turner, Executive Director, ITGO.
