MISSION - Objectives

The main objectives of the Chair are to:

  1. develop innovative methods and techniques and their related tools (softwares, decision-support systems, etc.) for the analysis, design, planning, management and operations of transportation and logistics systems;

  2. contribute to the scientific and technological progress in operations research, in particular for its application to transportation and logistics, as well as for parallel and distributed optimization to information technologies and operations management;

  3. insure the technological transfer of the research results aiming at improving efficiency and productivity of logistics and transportation systems of Canadian organizations and firms;

  4. train high-qualified personnel and specialists and to assist in non-stop training of people working in industries and public organizations;

  5. structure and insure long-term development of a multidisciplinary research and advanced educational pole in transportation and logistics at ESG UQAM.

It is very important to mention here the unique place the Chair occupies for the future plans of the University. The Chair’s main theme, logistics management, is most important for the unifying research themes of UQAM’s School of Management Plan stratégique de développement de la recherche.

The Chair is also the way UQAM can take part into the activities of the le Interuniversity Research Centre on Enterprise Networks, Logistics and Transportation (CIRRELT), (Université de Montréal, Université Laval, HEC Montréal, École Polytechnique de Montréal and UQAM) recognized as a Strategic Cluster by the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la nature et les technologies (FQRNT) and the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC).
