Logistics Information Technology Solutions Lab (LITSLAB)
The field of logistics and supply chain management and its importance to the Northeast Florida regional economy makes acquiring the latest software for student instruction imperative for the UNF Transportation and Logistics Flagship Program. While most university programs typically use customized academic simulations to teach, UNF utilizes the same programs used by business professionals. UNF is a member of a prestigious community of universities around the world that license and use SAP software to understand and manage critical operations. The employability of UNF Transportation and Logistics graduates is enhanced by integrating a strong curriculum with hands-on experience and state-of-the-art technology.
