Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
International moving company Allied Van Lines Canada announced their plan to launch a 2015 scholarship to financially support and provide aid to those in the fields of logistics and similar majors related to careers in the moving services industry. Founded in 1928, Allied Van Lines initially served as a cooperative, non-profit company, eventually growing to become the world’s largest standalone van line relocation and logistics company.
“We embrace the opportunity to invest in our future by supporting those who will one day provide valuable contributions to our exciting industry,” said Phil Murphy, Vice President, Allied Van Lines Canada. “It makes great business sense for us to hold students aiming for logistics-related careers in high regard.”
Interested and qualified students should produce a brief essay detailing why they have chosen a career path in logistics or supply chain management. Entries should be written in a highly personalized style, detailing the student’s decision to enter into the field and what he or she expects as a professional in the industry. Four deserving students will be selected, each a recipient of a $1,000 scholarship award. Winners will be announced on Allied Van Lines’ Logistics Scholarship page.
Students interested in entering can do so on the official Allied Van Lines Logistics Scholarship page, as well as learn about eligibility requirements. Entry deadline is December 1, 2015
