The Dallas-Fort Worth area is a driving economic force. The region's web of interstate highways, railways and airports makes it North America's No. 3 distribution point. The location is prime for learning logistics, but two decades ago, no local university had a supply chain program, and the best job candidates often came from other states. That changed in 1996 when planning began for a bachelor's degree in logistics that would produce a strong stream of graduates for the North Texas region.

The UNT logistics program in the College of Business marked its 20-year anniversary with an open house celebration April 22. During the event, students demonstrated modeling and simulation equipment and other new technology in the Complex Logistics Systems Laboratory, one of the newest branches of the logistics program. Founders and current leaders of UNT logistics also held a brief talk about how the program was born, its accomplishments and where it is heading.

Since its founding, UNT logistics has expanded to include the Texas Logistics Education Foundation-Center for Logistics Education and Research and the Jim McNatt Institute for Logistics Research, along with the center.
