Logistics

Research Group

Main organisation:Quantitative Methods
Lifecycle:1 Oct 2009  →  Today
Organisation profile:

The research group Logistics focuses on two domains. In the first domain, planning problems in external distribution logistics are modeled by means of operations research techniques. Expertise on combinatorial optimization problems is applied to practical problem settings in freight transportation and logistics. In the second domain, simulation and optimization techniques are applied in a supply chain management context.

Keywords:Distribution logistics, Freight transport, Intermodal transport, Operations research, Simulation
Disciplines:Operations research and mathematical programming, Machine learning and decision making, Transport planning, Logistics and supply chain management, Mathematical methods, programming models, mathematical and simulation modelling
