SCL reaches out to students, educators, businesses and the logistics community in an effort to increase exposure and accessibility to supply chain & logistics expertise through a variety of educational programs, partnership opportunities and outreach activities.
New ideas and new tools are born in the robust research environment supported by the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. Solutions and improvements produced by researchers provide businesses with the high level of competitiveness that is critical to their success in the marketplace both at home and overseas.
Thousands of logistics and supply chain management professionals have advanced their knowledge—and their companies’ profitability—with the education they obtained through the courses and graduate degree programs offered through the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Dr. Southworth is a transportation consultant and an Adjunct Principal Research Scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Between 1984 and 2011 he held various R&D and managerial positions at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, leaving to take a faculty position at Georgia Tech in February 2012. Prior to joining ORNL he was a faculty member in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, and before that a research officer at the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds in England.
Dr. Southworth has published extensively on transportation planning topics, and been involved in the management of a number of large transportation data and modeling projects that have produced widely used datasets and software tools, receiving a number of awards for his research. Most of this research has been for federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Agency for International Development, and various branches of the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security and Transportation. He has also carried out research for, among others, the National Science Foundation, the Transportation Research Board, the Brookings Institution, the Pew Center for Global Climate Change, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Georgia, New York, and Tennessee State Departments of Transportation and the British Science Research Council. An innovator in combining geographic information systems software, network flow estimation methods and engineering cost models to display freight movement patterns, in 1992-93 he oversaw creation of the database that produced the first digital mapping of the National Highway System.
He is a past member of the American Transportation Research Institute’s Research Advisory Committee and a current member of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Freight Advisory Task Force, and has regularly served on regional and national research panels dealing with data, statistical and mathematical modeling issues in both freight and passenger transportation.
