24 Apr JSI Austin Hosts Academic Tour
The JSI Austin branch recently hosted a Logistics class from Austin Community College, taught by Professor Shawn Levsen of UPS.
Jeff Beck, JSI’s Director of North American Operations, provided an introduction to JSI, including our history, services, and locations around the world. Eric Mora, our Austin Distribution Manager, gave the class a tour and showed them warehousing, inventory control, the LEAN program, handling techniques and security. Roger Wood, the Facilities Manager for North America, gave an in-depth talk on facilities management, safety and security. Claudia Green, JSI’s Corporate Compliance Manger, gave a comprehensive overview of trade compliance and how it relates to distribution.
The tour closed with a Q&A from the students and tied the whole presentation together to present how many employment opportunities are available in the logistics industry. Our team appreciated the opportunity to educate the students, who reported back that this was “probably the most organized warehouse we have visited”!
