Established in 1992, the Southern Center for Logistics and Intermodal Transportation (SCLIT), is housed within the Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) in the Parker College of Business at Georgia Southern University.

Through education, research and outreach activity, the SCLIT will serve and equip transportation, logistics, and supply chain management students, professionals, and organizations with the knowledge and tools necessary to develop and implement programs and solutions that advance and improve supply chain practice.

SCLIT leadership and personnel intend to deliver on this mission through engagement with stakeholders in the following areas:

  • Research
