Logistics Systems (LAC)

Advisers: Dr. Abdul Pinjari and Dr. Seckin Ozkul

Part of a multi-disciplinary research team that was involved in the evaluation of logistics-led economic development – a project funded by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) – [FDOT Project: BDV25 977-04]. The goal of this research was to conduct an extensive review and case study analysis of logistics activity centers (LACs) within the United States and abroad in order to determine their success and deterrence factors. Insights from this review process were then used in order to develop a framework for identifying success and deterrence factors for LACs.
