The Southshore Companies St. Joseph, Michigan warehouse manager, Bob Oberheu, recently completed the International Warehouse Logistics Association’s, four day Essentials Course in Logistics Management. This comprehensive continuing education course is promoted by the IWLA (www.iwla.com) as “the industry’s premier training camp.” The class outline includes best practice topics ranging from warehouse construction and layout techniques to warehouse law and state of the art warehouse management information technologies.
Southshore is a third party logistics provider with logistics outsourcing operations in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Connecticut. The Southshore Companies require all managers to participate in continuing education through the IWLA or other recognized professional continuing education programs. In addition, Southshore has initiated a series of monthly manager training teleconferences with all Southshore locations to discuss continuing education topics, customer case studies and logistics best practices. Drawing on his experience at the IWLA Essentials Course in Logistics Management and his wide experience as a warehousing logistics and distribution operator, Bob Oberheu will organize and lead these Southshore manager teleconferences.
