Three students on the Master’s Program in Logistics are to conduct research on new models for optimising the logistics of additives for hydrocarbons
Madrid, Spain, 10-2-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Today (5 February 2014), the CLH Group and the Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC) signed an academic collaboration agreement whose subject-matter covers research for optimising the supply and logistics of additives for hydrocarbons.
The signing ceremony was attended by the CLH General Manager of Operations, Juan Bonilla, and the head of CLH Group Logistics in the North-East Region, Iván Saco; as well as the Director of ZLC, David Gonsalvez, the director of the Master’s Program in Logistics, Alejandro Serrano, and the ZLC’s postdoctoral researcher, Yarí Borbón.
The agreement will enable three students on the Master’s Program in Logistics to carry out a research project that seeks to minimise the cost of the supply chain and logistics regarding additives for hydrocarbons. The final aim is to design a new model for optimising routes, based on a decentralised, separate distribution by geographical areas, and on improved prediction of demand, as well as the frequency of daily orders.
The ZLC is a research institute promoted by the Government of Aragón, in association with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and is affiliated with the University of Zaragoza.
Compañía Logística de Hidrocarburos CLH is the leading company in the Spanish market for the transportation and storage of oil products, with a pipeline network more than 4,000 kilometres long, and 39 storage facilities, with a total capacity of 7.9 million cubic metres, in addition to 28 airport facilities.
