Students were then invited to the operations and logistics floors to truly observe "Buchanan In Action." Students were paired up with a Buchanan professional and sat alongside them as they managed & dispatched trucks, planned routes & loads, worked with customers, spoke with drivers, handled logistics transactions and worked through the day's challenges. 

Lunch was provided and students were able to network with the management and executive teams. 

After lunch, students observed in the opposite department from which they'd spent the morning and were exposed further to the transportation industry. Following the afternoon session, students were invited to interview for open positions if they wished.
