Special Issue on Advances in Facility Location and Logistics 

Euro Journal on Transportation and Logistics

 
 
Guest editors: Isabel Correia, Teresa Melo, Olivier Péton
Submission deadline: 15 December 2020
Expected publication date: December 2021
 

 

In recent years, advances in technology have had a tremendous impact on transportation and logistics systems. Digital transformation, data analytics, cloud computing, and new business models are creating new challenges and opportunities, also for Operational Researchers. At the same time, social and environmental sustainability are also affecting how logistics systems and supply chain networks are configured and operated. Operational Research can make a valuable contribution to improving the quality of decision-making through developing new optimization models and solution techniques that capture the complexity of the new problems and interactions among different parts of the supply chain.

This special issue of the EURO Journal on Transportation and Logistics aims to publish original, high-quality manuscripts presenting innovative research and addressing theoretical achievements, algorithmic development, and real-world applications in the context of logistics, with a special focus on facility location.

 

Topics of interest

Papers submitted to this special issue should include facility location models and solution methods. The list of possible fields comprises (but is not limited to):

· Applications, e.g. in health care, in the public sector
· Data-driven approaches
· Design of innovative logistics systems
· Green logistics
· Humanitarian logistics
· Integration of location decisions with logistics operations (e.g. location-routing, location-inventory)
· Intralogistics
· Reverse logistics
· Supply chain design and service network design
