The Supply Chain Council has named the University of Houston’s Center for Logistics and Transportation Policy its first center of excellence in the Gulf Coast region. The center will house certification training for the council and host its Gulf Coast regional meetings.

“This partnership allows the center to be recognized as a key source of education in the global supply chain and logistics industry,” said Elizabeth Wetzel, managing director, UH logistics center. “Our association with the Supply Chain Council will support its regional efforts by providing a permanent meeting and training facility. Meanwhile, the UH College of Technology, where the center is housed, will gain recognition for its fine logistics and supply chain education.”

The Supply Chain Council, based in Washington, DC, is a global nonprofit whose methodology, diagnostic and benchmarking tools help member organizations improve their supply chain processes. It is most widely known for its Supply Chain Operations Reference, or SCOR® model, a framework used to evaluate and compare supply chain activities and their performance.

“The council is honored to establish this partnership with the university to fulfill SCOR training and certification needs particularly in the Gulf region of the US, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership,” said Joseph Francis, executive director, Supply Chain Council.

UH alumni will receive SCOR certification training at council member rates, and College of Technology faculty and staff will receive it for free.
