Our faculty roster includes experts in land, sea, and air logistics leading the implementation of e-logistics and the integration of bid-data and Artificial Intelligence in, within, and between supply chains.

Our Philosophy

As globalization becomes more pervasive so does the inter-connectivity of supply chains across the globe. Latin-America has become essential for the supply of foods and commodities for the developed economies. These two phenomena has fueled the imperative to transform supply chains into green supply chains. Our approach is to explore ways to optimize the interaction between different actors of the supply chain as well as the interaction of the supply chain with the environment and new technologies.
