Issues with America's supply chain have become front and center during the pandemic.

Before entering higher education, a professor at SIU-Carbondale worked as an import-export manager where he was responsible for importing about 100-million dollars in products annually.

Greg DeYong is currently working to establish a Center for Supply Chain Management and Logistics within the College of Business and Analytics.

He says it's a way to teach young people about the industry and encourage research into supply chain issues impacting local businesses.

DeYong says southern Illinois is a sleeping giant with its ability to move goods on trucks, trains and ships.

DeYong says he hopes the Center for Supply Chain Management and Logistics can get approved and be up and running by May 2024.
