Students in the Odette School of Business’ Master of Management, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management program took a field trip to a farm last week — but they didn’t visit a field.
Instead, the group learned about the greenhouse operations of Mucci Farms, which grows fruits and vegetables in Kingsville.
Logistics manager Bryan Miller provided the students with an overview of his role, how logistics fits into the larger organization, and the use of technology throughout the supply chain.
“Learning from the failures will always make the supply chain strong,” Miller said.
The students also toured the warehouse, where produce is prepared to be shipped to various customers.
“It was a great opportunity for us to understand different aspects of logistics in a real environment,” said Master of Management student Shahab Taheri.
