Manufacturing, Trade, and Logistics

Manufacturing creates both wealth and high-quality jobs, and is responsible for 70 percent of U.S. exports. In support of this key industrial area, Georgia Tech conducts basic and applied research in manufacturing, trade, and logistics – supplemented by strengths in related research disciplines such as materials and management. This multidisciplinary focus allows industrial sponsors to tap into comprehensive expertise, ranging from manufacturing processes and factory automation to supply chain management and enterprise transformation. Sponsors also benefit from Georgia Tech's experience in helping research innovations move from the lab to the marketplace, resulting in new commercial products.

The performance-centered logistics research aspect of the manufacturing, trade, and logistics area delivers information to decision-makers in all parts of the supply chain. Integrated and remote sensors, information systems, and wireless communications ensure accurate and timely information is available to influence supply chain strategy, warehousing and distribution, global transportation, resource scheduling, and health and humanitarian logistics.
