Logistics, Trade and Transportation Symposium
February 26-27, 2014 - Gulfport, Mississippi
University of Southern Mississippi’s Gulf Park Campus
The Center for Logistics, Trade and Transportation (CLTT) at the University of Southern Mississippi with sponsorship from the US Department of Commerce and the National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education (CFIRE) is hosting the Logistics, Trade and Transportation (LTT) Symposium - February 26-27, 2014 - Gulfport, Mississippi.
The LTT Symposium will gather leading logistics, trade and transportation industry, government, and research experts to exchange ideas on how to address the opportunities and challenges facing the U.S. Southeast transportation system from the changing global economy. Emerging trends such as the expansion of the Panama Canal, energy-based exports, and next generation vessels/vehicles, among many other cutting edge topics will be on the agenda. Attending this symposium will provide the new knowledge and connections that logistics, trade and transportation industry professionals need to succeed.
Focusing on the Southeastern Opportunities and Challenges the symposium will provide an opportunity for Industry Professionals, Professors and Students to network and discussed important issues through the symposium’s three tracks: Industry/Professional Track, Professors Track and Students Track. The students are encouraged to: a- Submit/Present Papers, b- Participate in the Case Study Competition, and c- Participate in the Speed Interview.
The LTT Symposium students track will provide industry with opportunities to interact with some of the best transportation students from across the nation at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Each company participating in the Speed Interview will be provided a book of resumes of students who are participating. The agenda provides plenty of time for the two groups to interact which will hopefully lead to future job opportunities.
