The mission of logistics and operations management is to produce the appropriate goods or services in the right quality and quantity, and to distribute them to the right place at the right time. Logistics and operations management is critical to the success of an engineering company and is often referred to today as the supply chain management process, which encompasses all operations from the extraction of raw material through to manufacture and to the recycling of products at the end of their lifespans.

This special issue aims at addressing these interesting research issues in the field of logistics and operation management.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advanced Logistics and Transport (ICALT’2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
