Background

Centre for Logistics (CELOG) is a research and knowledge centre at Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Aalborg University. We have two areas of interest that most of our activities relate to. The two focus areas revolve around research and collaborating with private companies and public institutions respectively.

Logistics is much more than transport

Logistics is used in many connections as a synonym for transport. This does not correspond with CELOG’s way of viewing the area. Technically speaking, CELOG refers to the research area as Industrial Operations & Supply Management, which is applied on domains as the public sector and sectors of transport, health and service.

Research at Centre for Logistics

CELOG’s research consists of focusing and strengthening Aalborg University’s research within logistics in order to position both the university and the centre as the leading in the country. The centre’s research includes among others research projects that primarily focus on the further development of tools and techniques to analysis, planning, optimising, tracking and integration

The Industry as a research lab

CELOG’s activities are highly outgoing and promote several types of collaboration with companies and institutions. Research methods are adapted to the industry, because this is the place where knowledge about logistics and supply chain is of most benefit.

CELOG differs from others not only by analyzing the problem. We also investigate why the problem occurs and thereby make every effort to find a solution that will benefit companies in the long run. In general, CELOG strive to make research as accessible for the industry as possible and therefore, most of the projects are carried through with involvement from private companies and public institutions.

Collaborating with Centre for Logistics

We contribute to improvements in companies through shared industrial projects within management parameters such as traceability, delivery time, delivery precision and flexibility.

The development projects are developed in collaboration with companies and institutions to improve flow in goods and information, use of capacity along with improvements in business processes, planning and integration, internally in the supply chain as well as externally.
