Research & Innovation Network

The Logistics Division aims to promote a culture of research and innovation in the field of logistics through collaboration between academia and the government. With this aim, a framework for a network of institutions has been created, which will help identify the gaps in existing research on logistic, thus identifying the future research projects on which horizon scan reports will be generated by academia basis the latest national and international developments. This network will promote collaborative technical research on specific areas within the logistics sector such as transportation, material handling, storage, documentation, processes, environmental impact assessment etc. for knowledge management and dissemination, sharing scientific data, information and best practices in the logistics sector. The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) has been inducted as the “anchor institution” to coordinate, organize and steer this network.
