Increased competitiveness in all economic sectors requires companies to achieve a high level of efficiency in the organization of their operations for their survival in the market and the acceptance of their customers. The knowledge imparted in this subject allows rigorous analysis of various logistical problems that arise in the production or service processes in order to provide a quantitative support tool for decision making. Moreover, the green scope given in this subject helps the student to understand the contribution that sustainability produced in the mobility of goods and people.
