Chair of Production and Logistics





Our mission as an economics department

Our mission as an economics department is to improve the world today and for future generations through excellent research, education and social commitment. We want to understand, convey and change the economic, social and personal transformation processes of an increasingly complex world. We do this in the areas of sustainability, digitalization and governance.  The team at the Chair of Business Administration, Production and Logistics implements this in research, teaching and transfer:

  • Our research is geared towards the development of business concepts and methods for the analysis, planning and monitoring of resource-saving, low-emission and climate-resilient material flows in internal and company-wide value-added networks. In this environment, the coexistence between humans and machines is also researched in the research focus of the MLU (Society and Culture on the Move).
  • In teaching, we convey current research results from the fields of green logistics and circular economy in teaching modules on sustainable goods transport and supply chain management. Our seminar events also deal with current topics such as the design of intermodal transport chains, transport process planning and e-mobility, cooperative systems of city logistics and logistical aspects in the sharing economy.
  • Knowledge transfer with research and application partners, the promotion of young scientists, visibility through publications in specialist journals and participation in the competition for institutional research funding go hand in hand. For example, the DFG joint project with the CAU Kiel “Emission-oriented management of land-based freight transport”, which was completed in 2022, resulted in two PhDs, a habilitation and more than 20 research articles, some of which were published at a high level. Significant for practice is u.a. our proposal for an eco-label for freight transport processes (see Journal of Industrial Ecology 26 (2022) 801-814), which was recently awarded the science prize of the industry association of the logistics industry, the Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL).
