Greater Chattanooga Freight Hub Database Planned

In a multi-state collaboration, Cleveland State Community College will support Thrive Regional Partnership and Georgia Tech in the development of the Greater Chattanooga Freight Hub database.

The hub is an open source database to understand freight capacity and explore multimodal freight transportation in the tri-state region.

“This collaboration truly reflects the value of approaching a challenge across boundaries,” said Bridgett Massengill, CEO of Thrive Regional Partnership in Chattanooga.

The collaboration is concurrent with the development of a logistics and supply chain management degree program at Cleveland State. It’s designed to connect students of the region to career opportunities in the transportation industry. Under the project leadership of Thrive and Georgia Tech, a student data technician from Cleveland State Community College will support the creation and maintenance of the hub, officials said.

Cleveland State President William Seymour said the effort will benefit local industry through the creation of the hub while providing a much-needed logistics and supply chain management program.
