The University of Tennessee and FreightWaves Sign an MOU

 The University of Tennessee’s Department of Supply Chain Management (SCM) and FreightWaves have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU).

The MOU is meant to develop collaborative ways to enhance both FreightWaves and University of Tennessee’s SCM programs through events and transportation-related research projects.

Shay Scott, Executive Director, Global Supply Chain Institute, said, “We have designed the curriculum in our SCM programs to be relevant, applied and forward-thinking. As such, we are pleased to partner with FreightWaves to integrate the SONAR platform into our coursework. FreightWaves has quickly become the preferred source of data and up-to-date perspective on the transportation industry, so it is natural that we work together to educate both today’s industry leaders as well as those of tomorrow using this powerful platform.”

Craig Fuller, FreightWaves’ Chief Executive Officer, added, “FreightWaves is thrilled to partner with The University of Tennessee’s Department of Supply Chain Management as part of our FreightWaves U initiative. We’re proud to call them our neighbours within Freight Alley, the corridor that defines freight traffic moving throughout the southeastern United States.  FreightWaves is happy to provide faculty and students with access and training on the FreightWaves SONAR platform and to our innovative events and programming.”
