Logistics and Supply Chain Innovations
Global markets are sustained by complex supply chains that integrate resources, people, production, and movement into sophisticated networks of delivery. It is less commonly recognized that the same integration is necessary to move a patient through surgery or a student into a classroom. Georgia Southern University researchers analyze and design network innovations that define the sciences of movement and integration.
Five of the ten largest clusters of employment in Coastal Georgia are centered in innovation, manufacturing, and supply chain sectors. These include aerospace and defense, water transportation, transportation and logistics, distribution and electronic commerce, and production technology and heavy machinery trade sectors. The Savannah area, with the fourth-largest container port in the U.S. and ranked as a top region in aerospace and defense, is a key source of economic activity for Georgia.
