Internship Opportunity ~
The Maritime Logistics Education Taskforce has an opportunity for students to participate in an internship program. Please see the following information on MLET and the specifics on the Internship.
The Maritime Logistics Education Taskforce (MLET) was formed in partnership with the Propeller Club-Port of Savannah, Savannah Traffic Club, Savannah Maritime Association, IFFCBA, Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals and the Navy League Savannah Council. The team is made up of passionate professionals who want to inspire the youth of today and inform them of the wealth of career opportunities surrounding waterfront trade. These professionals donate their time and resources to develop and implement programs to help students understand “What is Logistics?”
It is the mission of MLET to reach, educate and grow the current and future workforce of the logistics and maritime industry in the Savannah and surrounding coastal areas.
Follow the container The foundation for MLET is the Follow the Container (FTC) program. Student and educational groups receive a 360-degree overview of the supply chain through tours of Garden City Terminal and Port City Logistics. Integrated into the program is a presentation that outlines the importance of freight forwarding, freight brokering, trucking, warehouse services and distribution services in supplying products to consumers.
Student Internship Program: Students spend 200 hours over the course of 10 weeks learning hands-on how the international shipping process works. MLET coordinates with area school systems and employers to give students real-life experiences. Companies open their doors to students to gain hands-on exposure of the various processes needed to move cargo.
What is Logistics? The professional members of MLET use industry knowledge and experience to create material to help students and educators understand “What is Logistics?” and the vast career possibilities in the logistics industry. Materials include PowerPoint presentations, handouts, glossary of shipping terms and logistics process manuals.
How can employers help?
