Supply Chain Career Development Center (SCCDC)

With its ideal location in the U.S., Greater Cincinnati is now home to more logistics companies than all but three, much larger metros—Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta. Employers throughout the region identify as a critical need: closing the expanding “skills gap” in the supply chain/logistics workforce. It is a gap that threatens the growth of not only logistics firms, but also other key industries in the region, especially advanced manufacturing. With grant funding from the Department of Labor TAACCCT program* , in spring 2016the Supply Chain Career Development Center (SCCDC) was launched  addressing employer needs by creating flexible, modularized career pathways in supply chain management and logistics for  trade-impacted workers, veterans and other adults.  SCCDC delivers the real-world education and hands-on training that can lead directly to a job and career opportunities.   SCCDC offers a regional materials handling learning training laboratory as the primary location for most of the programs.  The training options include core technical certificates for entry-level specialized certificates in supply chain and logistics that are competency-based, meet employer needs, correlate to industry-recognized credentials, and are stackable for attainment of an associate degree in Supply Chain.
SCCDC will leverage employer partnerships and the regional Tri-State Logistics Council (TLC), to encourage “cross pollination” of the best ideas about supply chain management from different industries. TLC promotes regional economic development and investment in education and infrastructure to drive growth in logistics and the transportation supply chain. It does so by focusing on workforce and training programs, technology and environmental initiatives, and advocating for a friendly business environment. The non-profit organization includes businesses in the transportation and logistics industries, governmental agencies, educational institutions, community groups and businesses in affiliated agencies.
