What is Sustainable Logistics Initiative?

We are helping companies to improve their Supply Chain Operations via better Logistics Sustainability.

Our mission is to support organizations to improve logistics and supply chain operations by creating applied and innovative research aimed at fostering growth while considering environmental and social sustainability.

 Our research helps solve organizations problems regarding logistics sustainability (large firms) and improving supply chain management expertise in their small business. These solutions are intended to create economic value and improve efficiencies.

The MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics has several Sustainable initiatives that aim to connect research outcomes to practical settings, enabling companies and stakeholders to leverage supply chains as a beneficial force to reaching sustainable development goals. 

MIT GeneSys

The MIT GeneSys project started in 2016 with the aim of contributing to small business growth specifically in the developing countries. The objective of the project is to provide a framework for managerial insights for micro and small firms. The project developed a comprehensive methodology and a mobile app that provides a detailed and comprehensive assessment of the potential of survival and sustainability of small firms.
