Shipping, Logistics and Operations Management

Shipping, Logistics and Operations Management

The research group in shipping, logistics and operations management is closely related to the Centre for Shipping and Logistics.

Research is primarily focused on planning and operations in government, companies and organizations. We have a special focus on modeling and the solution of discrete stochastic decision problems, with mathematical programming being the main methodology, often in combination with big data and analytics.

Within shipping economics we focus on empirical models related to operational and commercial optimization using vessel and spatial data. We are very active internationally with a large international network and numerous positions in journal boards and international organizations.

We have recently published in journals like Production and Operations Management, Transportation Science, INFORMS Journal on Computing, European Journal of Operational Research, INFORMS Journal on Applied Analytics, and Transportation Research A, B, D and E.
