Smart Supply Chain and Logistics

About the Group

Traditional supply chains are becoming increasingly complex as elements of information technology, artificial intelligence, and data science are integrated to improve traceability, quality, efficiency, and cost reduction. This research group aims to generate decision-making and optimization models for planning and real-time operations.

In the group, we attack problems of logistics, task planning, product distribution, personnel transport, warehouse management, and port operation, among others. For this, we build mathematical models and propose efficient resolution algorithms to obtain good-quality solutions in the shortest possible time.

Research lines

• Analysis, modeling, and optimization of supply chains.
• Data science for decision-making.
• Smart, sustainable, humanitarian logistics and transport.
