Award-winning Global Optimization Academy
In 2012, the collaborative, supply chain-wide optimization efforts of TNT Express, ORTEC and Tilburg University were awarded the INFORMS® Franz Edelman Award for its successful application of Operations Research in supply chain optimization. The main driver for the success of this program was the GO (Global Optimization) Academy, a two-year development program teaching supply chain, planning and logistics managers how to apply optimization principles in their daily activities to improve overall business performance.
Our goal is to teach you how to apply Advanced Analytics in your daily work activities by helping each participant to prepare a business case showing the potential benefit of a change in the supply chain to the bottom line company results.
