The paper presents a model inspired by the success of innovative logistics programs that have enhanced the relevance of academic programs by developing closer ties with logistics and transportation practitioners. Discussion focuses on examples that illustrate implementation of the model. The intent is to provide a blueprint for academics to enhance cooperation at locations that do not currently have such programs in place.
