Welcome to the Chair of Management and Logistics

Our research focuses on method-based and instrumentally-applicable support of planning and analysis of transport and logistics systems.

With the emphasis on intermodal transportation, we see the opportunity to adequately combine the specific technological strengths of different modes of transport, corresponding loading units, and transshipment technologies. What is adequate in this context can be determined by employing modeling, simulation, and optimization. Specifically, we investigate how the productivity and efficiency of intermodal transport can be increased. Furthermore, we consider society's view of achieving climate goals and reducing other external effects (realized via traffic avoidance, traffic reduction, and traffic shift to environmentally friendly modes of transport). The focus of the department is on the three economically and socially relevant research fields of intermodal transport chains, urban logistics and digital transport platforms.

Research close to practice

How does the introduction of a city toll affect urban freight transport? How can the service network design of an intermodal operator be optimized or route planning be made more efficient for a freight forwarder?
