Fleetowner 4034 Meritor Recognizes Central Michigan University Students Logistics Project

Real-world view

April 8, 2014

During last fall’s semester, Meritor experts worked closely with 16 student teams from two senior-level marketing and logistics classes at Central Michigan University (CMU) to analyze freight costs. Each team submitted reports to Meritor and to Zac Williams, CMU associate professor of logistics and marketing.

“Through this partnership with CMU, students applied their classroom training to gain real-world experience by analyzing how we move freight,” said Doug Wolma, Meritor’s general  manager-Global Aftermarket Operation.

“We emphasize active learning in our business classes at CMU,” added Williams. “It doesn’t get more applied than having real data to work with from a corporate partner in class. The students walked away with a valuable learning experience.”

Meritor presented first- and second-place awards during a banquet at CMU in Mount Pleasant, MI. Members of the first-place team were Matthew Brown, Christopher Humphreys, Vincent Meo, and Matthew Scholtens.

Meritor employees involved in this program included Mark Brennan, director, Global SCM Solutions, Logistics & EU Packaging; Mike Gimm, manager, Global Logistics & Transportation; Anissa King, manager, CMP Materials; Joe Pysh, material planner; and Tim Henige, corporate logistics engineer.
