Focus of our Research
Our supply Chain group includes staff from both Engineering and Business disciplines, delivering world class research with impact, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. The Supply Chain and Logistics sector is changing fast, with new innovative business models frequently disrupting the established norm, in many cases driven by technological advances. In particular the use and availability of large quantities of data provide opportunities to tailor solutions and create new business models. Our centre aims to identify future trends and opportunities, and lead the way in implementation of new solutions, improving services and reducing environmental impact of logistics, as new smart city models emerge. We take a holistic view, considering whole life impact of products and services, to strive for an integrated and responsible circular economy, to create what is future competitive on a global basis.
