Martin Savelsbergh is an optimization and logistics specialist with over 20 years of experience in mathematical modeling, operations research, optimization methods, algorithm design, performance analysis, logistics, supply chain management, and transportation systems. He has published over 100 research papers in many of the top optimization and logistics journals. Martin has a track record of creating innovative techniques for solving large-scale optimization problems in a variety of areas, ranging from supply chain master planning and execution, to world-wide tank container management, to vehicle routing and scheduling problems.

Martin Savelsbergh is professor in ISyE and research director of The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. He is actively involved in industrially sponsored research projects at The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, including the development of dynamic load planning technology for Saia, a large LTL carrier, the development of cost-to-serve analysis technology for Praxair, a large industrial gas distributor, and the development of collaborative transportation procurement technology for Rubber Network, a conglomerate of tire companies.

Other research projects that Martin is involved in include the analysis of the value of allowing deliveries to be split during distribution, the development of technology for inventory routing problems, the analysis of dispatch strategies for environments where requests for service arrive dynamically over time and where contracts are in place that guarantee service within a certain period, the cost-effective delivery of blood to regional hospitals operating with vendor managed inventory policies, the development and analysis of technology for effectively using meet-and-turn points in regional LTL networks, the development of robust empty container management models, and carrier bid optimization in the presence of competition.

Martin Savelsbergh served as Area Editor for Operations Research Letters, and currently serves as Associate Editor for Mathematics of Operations Research,Transportation Science, Networks, and Naval Logistics Research, and he is a member of the editorial board of Constraints. Martin has given presentations and short courses on optimization and logistics in more than a dozen countries around the world.
