Uber Freight acquired logistics platform provider Transplace for $2.25b last week, creating an unusual opportunity for the firm's expansion in the supply chain industry.

  • Where NWA fits in: The region is considered to be "the heart of the US logistics and supply chain management ecosystem," and the U of A provides a solid talent base through its supply chain management program.
