Transportation and Logistics

Optimizing the movement of people and goods is a long-standing research area with new possibilities due to advances in transportation technologies and data analytics. Operations research can enhance the routing, dispatching, staffing, and pricing decisions in emerging mobility systems such as ride-hailing and on-demand urban deliveries. With the deployment of disruptive technologies such as connected and automated vehicles, drones, and mobile devices, human factors play a central role in designing human-centric mobility and logistics systems. Clemson IE researchers are applying OR and HF to enhance the safety, efficiency, and equity of urban mobility services.

This area includes:

  • Emerging Mobility Service
  • Applications in E-commerce
  • Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
  • Horizontal Collaboration
