Logistics and supply chain management

Bridge with truck

Efficient and robust supply chains are prerequisites for the world we know today. Supply chains tie the world together, coordinating flows of raw materials, subcomponents and finished products that companies and private consumers demand.

Supply chain management can be described as the processes involved in handling the total production flow for a product, i.e., from purchasing raw materials and managing manufacturing processes to final delivery of the end product/service.

Logistics play a pivotal role in the management of supply chains, as these processes control the incoming physical and informational flow of raw materials/components and the outgoing flow of finished products or services. Thus, logistics deal with managing deliveries, storing raw materials/components and  internal and external transport of finished products.

At DTU Management, we work to establish primarily new mathematically-based planning methods that can control and lead complex supply chains and logistics systems more effectively. Our research is instrumental in enabling companies to develop their businesses to become increasingly resource- and climate-efficient. Our research combines the latest knowledge in advanced optimisation and simulation methods with our expertise within production, transport and healthcare systems.

Please get in touch with us if you have ideas for research projects or need an expert opinion.
