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 more than 150 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its approximately 41,000 students. With 11 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is a member of the University System of Georgia and the third-largest university in the state. The university’s vibrant campus culture, diverse population, strong global ties and entrepreneurial spirit draw students from throughout the region and from 92 countries across the globe. 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, and one of the 50 largest public institutions in the country.
