Welcome to the Institute of Production and Logistics Management!

In both research and teaching, we focus on quantitative methods for decision support in operations, logistics, and supply chain management. We work on a wide range of topics such as sustainable location and routing problems, decision support in disaster relief, the development of multi-objective optimization methods, or planning and control of automated guided vehicles.

On our webpage we provide information about our study program, master's theses, current research projects, and events.

Since October 2018, the Endowed Chair "Sustainable Transportation Logistics 4.0" (ITS) is also part of the Institute of Production and Logisitics Managment (PLM). All information concerning the chair can found here: jku.at/its
