City and state officials recently opened Olive-Harvey College’s 103,000-square-foot Transportation, Distribution and Logistics (TDL) Center. Reportedly the first of its kind in Illinois, the facility was designed to prepare students for the tens of thousands of TDL jobs expected to come to the region over the next decade.
“With the completion of Olive-Harvey, we have modernized several of our City Colleges campuses and helped usher in a new era for higher education in Chicago,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Chicago is a juggernaut for transportation, distribution and logistics, and the new Olive-Harvey will help ensure that Chicago’s students are prepared for the thousands of jobs and opportunities in this rapidly-growing field.”
The TDL Center is home to a high-tech central warehouse, offering more than a hands-on training experience. Students will manage the distribution of supplies to all of City Colleges’ seven college campuses and five satellite sites across the city.
