The Logistics & Supply Chain Management Major examines issues such as developing trust and long-term partnerships, making tradeoffs for the benefit of the entire supply chain, meeting end-customer requirements, determining the best combinations of transportation modes, and strategic outsourcing and procurement.
On July 1, 2004, the Asper School of Business launched its new Department of Supply Chain Management (SCM), bringing together nine academic staff members from logistics, management science, operations management, and transportation. The Department is also home to the University of Manitoba Transport Institute.
Together, they share a mandate to be a Centre of Excellence in Transportation, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management. We are one of the few departments within North American universities to be focused on supply chain issues.
Researchers in the department and in the Transport Institute work in a variety of areas. Examples include transportation by road, rail, water, and air (including airships), humanitarian supply chain issues, healthcare operations management, transportation policy and regulation, international buyer-supplier relationships, applications of management science/operations research to supply chain issues, sustainable transportation, tri-country mid-continent transportation corridor issues, and issues of northern supply.
