September 7th, 2022

Columbus, Ohio (September 7, 2022)- The Columbus Chamber of Commerce and Columbus Region Logistics Council’s Women in Logistics group has a scholarship to fund the education of women studying in the Supply Chain Management and Logistics Engineering Technology programs at Columbus State Community College in an effort to grow the advancement opportunities for Central Ohio women in logistics.

CaaStle, a leading technology and logistics company that powers subscription rental services, provided an initial $5,000 for the scholarship fund in 2019, and we are excited to announce CaaStle has contributed another $5,000 this year. Scholarships will be awarded each year and include students entering their education, as well as women in the industry who are already employed.

Robert Christian, General Manager at CaaStle in Groveport, OH said, “During the pandemic, the world became acutely aware of the importance of Logistics as we all learned to navigate through Supply Chain challenges and delayed shipments.  As the world continues to change, and continues to evolve, the need for a more diverse supply chain is an absolute necessity.  New and innovative ideas surrounding Logistics are needed.  CaaStle has taken the necessary steps to help Women as they strive to grow in Logistics through higher education.  These Women, recipients of the CaaStle sponsored scholarship, will bring new and innovative ideas into our Logistics world.”

 “As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, I am excited to be a part of a CaaStle Team that is investing in the Community.  Whether we are stuffing back packs for children to return to school, packing boxes to help food drives or helping schools redesign rooms, CaaStle believes in helping the community.  Sponsoring a scholarship for Women in Logistics is yet another example of the commitment CaaStle has made to the Community.,” said Robert Christian III.  “We hope the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship from CaaStle through Columbus State Community College/Women in Logistics will inspire more Women to pursue a career in logistics and provide our Supply Chain with their innovative ideas.”
