A student team from the University of Wisconsin-Superior won the Intermodal Association of North America's (IANA) sixth annual academic challenge.

As part of the competition, teams presented solutions to a topical case study focused on "corporate decision-making within an environment of global steamship overcapacity," according to an IANA press release. A panel of industry experts composed of IANA board members then judged the presentation and selected the winner.

Teams competed at IANA's EXPO convention in Houston, which ran Sept. 18-20.

"This year’s expanded competition allowed the student teams to show a breadth of knowledge and insight into a very timely intermodal issue," said IANA President and Chief Executive Officer Joni Casey. "All of the presentations reflected an understanding of the global supply chain and its interrelationships as well as the outcomes of specific business decisions."

Students Jacob Irlbeck, Gavin Johnson and Hayden Norris represented the UW-Superior team.
