Why study Logistics & Transportation at Coastal Georgia?
Logistics and transportation are very prevalent in our service delivery area. Beyond the port in Brunswick, the ports in Jacksonville and Savannah are both within 60 miles. There is also the national hub of CSX Railroad in nearby Waycross, local UPS and USPS, Target distribution, Walmart distribution, Amazon distribution in Savannah and Jacksonville, FedEx distribution in Waycross, and others.
What will I learn?
Students taking the Logistics and Transportation concentration will learn an overview of logistics and intermodal transportation. Emphasis will be placed on local entities, but multi-national companies will also be explored. Costs of warehousing are discussed along with inventory processing. Courses run every eight weeks, all three semesters a year. Students will most likely compete the degree requirements within two years.
What can I do when I graduate?
Students may have job opportunities at the local ports - one in Brunswick, and two more, each 60 miles away. There are multiple distribution centers in the area along with a nationwide railroad hub in Waycross.
