Tuesday, April 10, 2012

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The Logistics Program in the University of North Texas College of Business has been ranked the world's 5th best program for supply chain and logistics research productivity by the International Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics Management.

Logistics involves the management of goods moving along a supply chain, or a complex system of technology, people, businesses and other resources involved in moving a product from a manufacturer to a customer.

UNT's logistics faculty have recently researched topics  including how professional drivers make safety decisions, how companies manage risk and create value in complicated supply chain systems, and how major aircraft manufacturers can reorganize their service models using performance-based contracting approaches. The department's professors work with major corporations including Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Co., Hillwood Investment Properties, JCPenney and Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co.

"Our logistics faculty have made substantial contributions to academic research in the areas of supply chain management and logistics," said Professor and Chair of the Department of Marketing and Logistics Jeffrey K. Sager. "The work done by UNT's logistics faculty also contributes to the supply chain and logistics industry across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and beyond."
