Logical Transport turned to Southampton Business School when it wanted expert advice on developing the next generation of resource scheduling systems for its clients’ passenger and freight transport operations.

Sophisticated algorithms were required to produce management software for effective resource management solutions for companies and organisations such as National Express, Group 4 Securicor and Bristol City Council.

Management scientist Dr Julia Bennell and Mathematics Professor Chris Potts contributed their expertise to the three-year project as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership. This programme helps businesses boost their competitiveness by tapping into university knowledge, technology and skills.

Dr Nik Pearson was engaged for three years to work directly with Logical Transport on the project. Logical Transport's Director of Business Development, Alan Willson, says: “Over the past two years our revenues have increased by more than 300%. Our relationship with the Business School and Mathematics at the University of Southampton have been, and continue to be, a significant contributor to this success.”
