To show support for logistics-based education programs, Inbound Logistics is offering a $2,500 scholarship in conjunction with ASTL to one undergraduate student. To apply, students are asked to submit a 2,000-word essay on why they chose a logistics and supply chain career, and how they envision that career impacting their future employer, as well as the U.S. and global economy. Submissions must be received by May 15, 2014. Essays will be submitted to Laurie Denham (email@example.com) of ASTL, and will be judged by Inbound Logistics Editor Felecia Stratton. Inbound Logistics will announce the winner in its June 2014 Logistics Careers and Education issue.
A special themed issue is planned for Winter 2015.
Manuscripts for this themed issue should clearly demonstrate the roles and impacts of transportation in contemporary logistics and supply chain management. Topics for consideration include: efficient management of transportation companies; transportation and corporate social responsibility (e.g., environmental, societal, economic); transportation stressors (e.g., congestion, security, energy costs); global transportation issues; transportation and economic development (e.g., public-private partnerships); collaborative transportation management; and technology in transportation management. Manuscripts should be submitted no later than May 31, 2014, for consideration.
