Donald Ratliff, UPS and Regents' Professor in ISyE and executive director of the Supply Chain & Logistics (SCL) Institute at Georgia Tech, was recently interviewed by GlobalAtlanta to discuss the opening of a new logistics center in Costa Rica.

Written by David Beasley, the article announces that Georgia Tech on August 20 will open a center in Costa Rica aimed at improving foreign trade by helping companies there get products to market faster and more efficiently. Located in the capital city of San Jose, the Trade-Chain Innovation and Productivity (TIP) Center is designed to teach graduate students and company executives how to improve supply chains and logistics. It will also serve as an important research center in those fields. "Supply chains and logistics are fundamental to trade," said Ratliff. "It would be impossible for anyone to be good at trade that doesn't have good supply chain and logistics capabilities."
