GU8 logistics work comprehensively covers the movements among firms, markets and households. We blend in-depth research and relevant expertise to tackle challenges such as end-end global supply chain optimisation, with emphasis on green and sustainable supply chain design and management strategies.
The concept of project management, and supply change management, has undergone a sea change. This adds a new dimension to our preconceived notions of corporate social responsibility and takes it several steps further to the questions of legacy.
We look into the complex modelling, analysis, visualisation and optimisation of business situations through developing advanced computer software and simulation techniques. The GU8 Consortium aims to create a new breed of globally-aware logisticians and researchers.
Given the discipline of logistics was originally developed for strategic and warfare purposes, it is important that we recognise the applications it can have not just in corporate businesses, but also in disaster relief, humanitarian aid and building resilience.
