At Ga. Logistics Summit, An Industry Seeks Younger Workers
About 2,000 people in the transportation industry are at the Georgia World Congress Center this week for the Georgia Logistics Summit
KENNESAW, Ga. (May 17, 2017) — In Georgia, logistics is a big industry, led by United Parcel Service, Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and the Norfolk Southern Railway. The state also is a route along major trucking corridors.
However, the industry has a problem: an aging workforce.
A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State University offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its nearly 43,000 students. With 11 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is a member of the University System of Georgia. The university’s vibrant campus culture, diverse population, strong global ties and entrepreneurial spirit draw students from throughout the country and the world. Kennesaw State is a Carnegie-designated doctoral research institution (R2), placing it among an elite group of only 6 percent of U.S. colleges and universities with an R1 or R2 status.
