The Georgia Institute of Technology is broadcasting a free “Webinar” concerning logistics in China on Tuesday, July 25, from 8-9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Entitled “Building Effective Logistics in Post-WTO China,” the Webinar will feature James Gagne, BAX Global Inc.’s managing director of Central and Northern China, who will broadcast directly from China. Replays of the session may be downloaded at afterward.

Bax Global, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn AG, is a supply chain and software transportation company with a network of some 500 offices in 133 countries.

Mr. Gagne is to provide an overview of transportation infrastructure in China including its intermodal capabilities. He also will discuss logistic trends and future projects in China.

A product of Georgia Tech’s executive master’s degree in international logistics, the upcoming Webinar is one in its “virtual classroom” series.

Each Webinar covers such topics as supply chain management, international logistics and global manufacturing. An archive of the series may be accessed at

“As the global network in China expands, so does the need to understand the long-term impact on logistics and supply chains,” John Vande Vatge, executive director of the executive master’s degree program, said in a news release.

The 18-month program, which is typically attended by executives at the vice president, director or senior management level with an average of 14 years of business experience, includes two weeks of intensive courses per semester as well as distance-learning alternates.

The intensive courses are held at various locations in Asia, Latin America and Europe and on the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta.
