Leading logistics software developer WiseTech Global has partnered with top universities and training institutions to offer students industry-ready training in supply chain technology. WiseTech Global has developed a world-first technology training program to give vocational and college-level students a head start as they prepare to enter the logistics industry.
The WiseEducation Partner program provides students with real-world operational skills in CargoWise One, a world-leading cloud-based logistics management system used widely around the world with clients holding more than 100,000 licenses across 5,000 sites in 105 countries.
The WiseEducation program has been developed in response to requests from educational institutions worldwide, and represents WiseTech Global’s longstanding support of technology education for a more productive, integrated, and compliant logistics industry.
The WiseEducation program grants partnered institutions the opportunity to incorporate the CargoWise One system as an integral part of their courses in the form of free software licenses, free certification training for teaching staff, and free access to the same comprehensive training materials developed for global logistics providers.
WiseTech Global’s VP of partner management, Vlad Bilanovsky explains that teachers can use the software to emulate the ‘live’ supply chain in the classroom, helping to create a virtual logistics environment wherein several specific supply chain processes simulate every operation from origin to destination. Throughout the program, students can gain practical working knowledge of the industry’s documentation, reporting, and compliance requirements.
WiseEducation Partners include the University of Sydney’s renowned Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS), part of Australia's Key Centre of Excellence in Transport Research and Education. Through the program, ITLS Master of Logistics Management students will be able to strengthen their studies with hands-on operational training in an enterprise-class system used by leading logistics providers the world over.
The WiseEducation Partner program provides a unique opportunity for graduates to get started and for those already working in the industry to make their mark. Combining experience in industry-leading software with valuable technology skills that are becoming prerequisites in the competitive logistics employment market, the training program prepares the next generation of logistics managers.
The WiseEducation Partnership program will soon be expanded globally.
