Supply Chain Council (SCC) and academic member, University of Houston Center for Logistics and Transportation Policy, College of Technology, announce their agreement for the Center to house the SCC's first permanent Regional Center of Excellence for the U.S. Gulf Region. This Center will house all of the Certification training for the SCOR(R) Reference (Supply Chain Operations Reference) model and will host the Regional meetings of the SCC.

Elizabeth Wetzel, Managing Director of the Center at the UH, says, "This partnership allows the Center to be recognized as a key source of education in the global supply chain and logistics industry. Our association with the Supply Chain Council will support the Council's regional efforts with a permanent meeting and training facility.

The UH College of Technology will gain recognition for its fine logistics and supply chain education through this partnership. The supply chain for manufacturing and delivering goods is the backbone of every aspect of the marketplace."

Joseph Francis, Executive Director of Supply Chain Council, adds, "The Council is very honored to establish this partnership with the University to fulfill SCOR training and certification needs, particularly in the Gulf Region of the U.S., and we look forward to a fruitful partnership."
