The CLTT Industry Advisory Council…
promoting common goals in logistics, trade and transportation



“The relationship of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport with the Center for Logistics, Trade and Transportation is yielding significant benefits to the airport’s air cargo operation and to our related projects with surface and ocean modes of transportation. We continue to work with the Center’s multidisciplinary team on multiple projects with excellent results. These collective efforts have allowed us to consolidate and expand the area’s regional, national and international cargo business and solidify new logistics opportunities through our private sector companies.”

Bruce A. Frallic, AAE, Executive Director, Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport (1986-2012)


“In the coming years, Mississippi’s role in international trade and transportation will not only support the bold plans our state has for continued economic growth and development, but the world will come to see Mississippi as a gateway in an ever growing and sophisticated supply chain. The University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Logistics, Trade and Transportation will play a vital part in preparing a new breed of young professionals skillfully trained and academically developed for the dynamic challenges and opportunities that await us all just around the corner.”

Don Allee, Executive Director Mississippi State Port Authority at Gulfport (2001-2012)


The Mississippi Department of Transportation is proud to break ground with USM on this exciting and much needed center. The Center for Logistics, Trade and Transportation (CLTT) is the first of its kind in the state—preparing and educating the best transportation minds in response to a growing national demand for experienced transportation professionals. Facilitating the rapid and reliable transportation of freight through Mississippi is vital to our economic growth and quality of life. CLTT is the right program at the right time!
