UC Operations Management and Industrial Management students toured the local EXEL Smucker's facility in Cincinnati on November 12th, 2010. EXEL Transportation is an operating unit of the EXEL Corporation, the leading contract logistics provider in the Americas, and part of the SUPPLY CHAIN division of Deutsche Post DHL. As the world's leading logistics group, Deutsche Post DHL has more than 500,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories around the world and annual revenues of more than $93 billion. This is the second opportunity this year that students have visited EXEL.
The tour was a part of the OM/IM student APICS group on campus organized by OM student officer, Chintan Desai. Students were given a behind the scenes tour from General Manager, Steve Duncan and Manager Mike Bush. This facility is one of two national distribution points for Smucker's brand items such as Crisco, Folgers, Smucker's jelly and other food items in the Smucker's family of products.
