The project team of the 2nd year undergraduate students under the guidance of Associate professor of Logistics A. B. Vinogradov organized excursions to the warehouses of the companies "M. Video", "IKEA", "Stockmann", production and warehouse complex "Coca-Cola", as well as a visit to the office of "Adidas". In addition, the project team organized workshops of logistics managers and top managers of such world-famous companies as "Adidas", "Stockmann" and "DHL". During excursions to warehouses and distribution centres, students got acquainted with modern technological and lifting and transport equipment (including automated stacker cranes), peculiarities of cargo handling operations (unloading, acceptance, intra-warehouse transportation, storage, order picking, shipment, taking into account the specifics of product groups and the needs of the customer base), saw with their own eyes various solutions that improve the efficiency of the logistics infrastructure. Participation in the master classes allowed students to get an idea about the key logistics processes of organizations in various business areas, to get acquainted with typical problems and ways of solving them, to learn about new technologies used in the field of logistics and supply chain management, to ask questions to the carriers of valuable expertise and get meaningful answers. The administration of the School of Logistics thanks students and business representatives who made it possible to implement this project. The project on organizing excursions and workshops under the guidance of A. B. Vinogradov will continue in 2019/2020 academic year.
