Organisation profile

Heriot-Watt University has been engaged in logistics research and teaching for over 25 years. Our leadership in logistics was recognised in the mid-1980s when we became only the second university in the UK to develop expertise in logistics teaching and research looking at the management of the flow of goods. Our Logistics Research Centre (LRC) was set up in 1997 to explore the many aspects of logistics for commercial, government and other sectors.
