Principles of MarketingWhat Do Marketers Do?

C.H. Robinson is a third-party logistics provider headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Many businesses outsource elements of distribution, warehousing, and fulfillment services to companies such as C.H. Robinson. Like wholesalers, logistics providers, also an intrinsic part of the value delivery system, operate largely outside of the public eye.

Reach out to one of the 297 C.H. Robinson locations and ask if you can speak to someone about recent supply chain trends for a college course assignment. Your questions may include the following:

  • How does technology impact the supply chain?
  • What is the biggest industry you work with that depends on supply chain partners?
  • How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted product availability and distribution efforts?
  • What does a typical day at C.H. Robinson consist of?
  • What special training do I need to work in supply chain logistics?
  • What is a typical salary for a professional new to C.H. Robinson?
  • Do you have an internship program?
