The School of Logistics, Distribution, and Transportation is a cluster of programs that involve the transportation of passengers and cargo, warehousing & storage for goods, and the supportive activities related to modes of transportation. Like all career and technical education, these training programs combine classroom instruction and hands-on experience with the latest technology in state-of-the-art labs. The needs of a fast paced society require technicians who can manage, service, maintain, and ensure that people, materials, and goods arrive where they need to be safely and on time. Advancing technologies continue to change processes within the Logistic, Distribution and Transportation industry. Collision repair requires technicians to repair and refinish damaged vehicles to drive like new by straightening bent bodies, removing dents, and replacing unrepairable parts. The increasing sophistication in the automotive technology field requires technical, computer, and mechanical skills to inspect, maintain, and repair automobiles. Logistical services manage all aspects of the movement of goods between producers and consumers; computerized inventory management has improved the efficiency of those relationships.
