8th Annual IANA Logistics & Supply Chain Management Competition 2016


At the University of North Florida


April 7-10, 2016 


On April 8, 2016 thirty-five students and faculty from Auburn University, Georgia Southern University, University of Arkansas, University of Maryland, University of North Florida, University of North Texas and the University of Tennessee participated in the 8th Annual IANA Logistics & Supply Chain Management Case Competition at the University of North Florida. Students from the University Tennessee impressed the judges with their presentation and took away first place honors. The University of North Texas was named runner-up team. Congratulations to all the teams that participated.


The student presentations were judged by a group of business professionals representing a broad section of related industries. Tim Feemster from Foremost Quality Logistics, T. Parker McCrary of CSX Transportation, Debbie McDowell of Seaonus, Tim Nelson of Interstate Distributors, Val Noel from TRAC Intermodal, Todd Pye of Florida Rock and Tank Lines, and Robert Weist from Crowley Logistics served on the distinguished panel of judges. IANA commissioned Larry Gross of Gross Transportation Consulting to write the intermodal case study specifically for the IANA Case Competition.


On Saturday following the case competition, the students enjoyed a comprehensive tour of the Jaguars Stadium at Everbank Field hosted by Hamzah Ahmad, Director of Logistics and Facilities for the Jacksonville Jaguars. During the 3 day event, the students had a wonderful opportunity to network with their peers, learn about the academic programs at other universities, hone their analysis and presentation skills, and enjoy the sunshine and night life in Jacksonville Beach.


The UNF Coggin College of Business is grateful to the Intermodal Association of North America for their support as presenting sponsor. An event of this caliber would not be possible without their generosity.


The 9th Annual IANA Logistics and Supply Chain Management Case Competition will take place April 6 - 8, 2017 at the University of North Florida.
