While textbook knowledge is vital to understanding the theory behind how transportation and logistics systems are managed, there is a compelling need for both students and faculty to observe the personnel and equipment in operation. The Twin-Ports region offers a rich opportunity for observation and interaction with progressive companies as part of the total educational process.

The Transportation and Logistics Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Superior has established partnerships with companies so that students and faculty can go on scheduled tours of facilities as part of relevant courses. The Center also arranges for guest speakers from industry to bring current practices into the classroom and for students to meet leaders and role models.

During a typical term the T&L students have been actively supported by the following industries though tours and speakers in the classroom:
