The SCMRC hosted its first-ever Dallas-Fort Worth Supply Chain Shadow Days, taking place between January 9 - 10, 2024. The Shadow Days featured seven companies opening their doors and offering a great opportunity to learn about a day-in-the-life of professionals in a leading supply chain company.

The participating companies reprenseted several different verticals within the supply chain industry including aerospace, automotive, petroleum, transportation, and CPG. 

Hosting the event during winter break allowed students who live in the DFW area - or were willing to travel there - to experience unique opportunties at companies they normally wouldn't have access to during the school year. And since the event took place over two days, several students were able to participate in multiple shadowing opportunities. 

Participating companies were:

  • HF Sinclair
  • Infor
  • McClane Company, Inc
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Southeastern Freight Lines
  • Toyota North America
  • Uber Freight
