Research Council

The goal of the Research Council, a voluntary group of real-world experts interested in the science of logistics, is to identify research deficits in the logistics field vis-à-vis the public at large and to use the resulting insights as a basis for the development of important and necessary projects. The Research Council is not itself a research body but aims to initiate, support and review key research projects.
