Joe Tillman, manager of education programs for SMC3, provided an overview of various aspects of logistics education and career development, including: the role that SMC³ is taking for career/professional development; trends in career/professional development; logistics as a career path for new and seasoned professionals; trends in supply chain/logistics employment; and hard (technical) vs soft (branding) skills development.

Joe Tillman is the manager of education programs for SMC3. Joe has a keen interest in all things supply chain and uses his high-energy approach to life to author articles and write blogs for industry publications, and to speak to supply chain industry conferences and groups. He has more than 100 published articles in various publications, including our own Supply Chain Management Review and Logistics Management, among others.

Prior to joining SMC³, he co-led the Warehousing Education and Research Council’s influential annual benchmarking study, “DC Measures” as a WERC Researcher. In addition, he was an assistant professor of operations/supply chain at Christian Brother University. In 2006, he founded TSquared Logistics, a company focused on education, practitioner-based research, and training.

Inventory Management, Transportation and Warehouse

Joe has more than 15 years’ experience in inventory management, transportation, and warehousing. He has worked as a conductor for Union Pacific Railroad, as a diesel mechanic apprentice for University of Georgia, and import warehousing with Walmart. Joe’s work experiences shaped his education philosophy that you teach a person to fish by encouraging a vision, providing them the tools needed, and continuous coaching to be successful.

Joe is certified in transportation and logistics by AST&L, SCOR-Professional certified by the Supply Chain Council, both now part of APICS/ASCM, and certified in less than truckload transportation by SMC³. He has an MBA from Georgia Southern University with an emphasis in Logistics and Organizational Performance. He also holds a BS in Geography from the University of Georgia.
