Welcome to the Institute of Production and Logistics Management!

We focus on quantitative methods in support of decision-making in both research and teaching in the areas of operations, logistics, and supply chain management. In addition, we focus on a wide range of topics that include sustainable location and routing problems, decision support in regard to disaster relief, developing multi-objective optimization methods, as wel as planning and controlling automated guided vehicles.

Our homepage contains information about our academic degree program, Master's degree theses, current research projects, and events.

The endowed chair "Sustainable Transportation Logistics 4.0" (ITS) has also been part of the Institute of Production and Logistics Management (PLM) since October 2018. Detailed information about the chair is available at: jku.at/its, opens an external URL in a new window
