Business Advisory Council

NUTC's Business Advisory Council (BAC) is comprised of senior-level executives representing all modes of transportation including shipper and carrier firms, freight forwarders and third party logistics providers, financial institutions, consulting firms, and trade associations. Unequaled by any academic transportation advisory board in the country, the BAC is a critical asset to NUTC and a major factor in its long-term success.

BAC members serve as advisors to NUTC, providing important real-world insights into the issues and problems they face in their businesses. This perspective is vital to NUTC as it strives to shape its research and educational programs to best serve the changing needs of the dynamic transportation industry.

Membership Levels

BAC membership is divided into four categories—Leadership, Sustaining, Association and Individual. Leadership Level members are corporations that have shown exceptional levels of commitment in their support of NUTC's activities; Sustaining Level member companies provide essential support for NUTC. BAC members also benefit from the involvement of key transportation-related Associations and Individual Level leaders with transportation and logistics experience. Each category entails a set of membership benefits, as well as a suggested level of financial support and commitment.

Member Benefits

Member benefits include access to Northwestern’s world-class faculty, opportunities for networking with industry peers, invitations and involvement in special programs and events, insights into cutting-edge research and industry trends, and access to Northwestern’s renowned Transportation Library and its bright student population.
