Canter and Associates, a subsidiary of Sylvan Learning Systems, had a goal to become the largest teacher training organization in the United States. To do this, they needed a revolutionary reverse logistics supply-chain solution to rapidly grow their operations from a single state the entire country.
Canter’s distance learning courses and programs are designed for busy, full-time teachers who wish to continue in their jobs while earning professional development credits or a master’s degree. Seven fully accredited universities partner with Canter to offer master’s degree programs in education. The course materials including text books, journal articles, study guides and video tapes, are delivered to teachers for continuing education via fulfillment services provided by Dart Logistics International, a multi-channel supply chain and fulfillment house.
