TRADE & LOGISTICS INNOVATION CENTER

Modern supply chains face significant challenges to keep sustained growth and maintain their competitive edge. These challenges are primarily associated with the introduction of new products, the use of new information technologies, as well as a constant pressure to reduce costs and improve service levels. This has resulted in increasingly fragmented supply chains with higher levels of outsourcing, which imposes additional challenges for efficient operations. Thus, effective management of the supply chain and its associated logistics become crucial to ensure business sustained success.

In response to this concern, Tecnológico de Monterrey joins efforts with Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), a leading university in logistics worldwide, to create the Trade and Logistics Innovation Center of Mexico. We join the international network of logistics research centers of the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL) based in Atlanta, USA, with centers also in Singapore, Shanghai, Costa Rica and Panama focused on increasing trade and improving logistics performance.

Target

Help companies improve their logistics skills to get the best out of their market niche and make their operations more efficient.
