With Savannah’s economy rapidly growing and evolving, there has never been a more imperative time to invest in our local workforce. Numerous local programs are further bolstering our talent pipeline and providing skills needed for our workforce to thrive in a competitive economy.
This week, check out the Maritime Logistics Education Taskforce. With partnerships between area high schools and numerous business supporters, students are given hands-on industry experience through internships in areas that include warehousing, waterside logistics, cold storage, freight forwarding, customer service, and transportation. Such programs play an important role in developing high skilled talent that will help bolster one of our region’s vastly growing industries.
