Welcome to the Institute of Business Logistics and General Management at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)

The Institute of Business Logistics and General Management belongs to the deanery of Management Sciences and Technology at the TUHH and conducts application-oriented research and teaching with a committed team.

In our
research we consider current issues in the fields of logistics and supply chain management, supply chain risk management, technology and process innovation in logistics, supply chain security, complexity and variety management as well as applied management methods. Therefore, we cooperate with national and international companies and research institutions.


Details can be found under projects and publications.


In our application-oriented and theoretically well-founded
teaching, we impart specialist competences from the fields of logistics, supply chain management and general management to students in order to prepare them for later specialist and management positions or activities in companies. Therefore, we use modern teaching methods to train personal skills as well.
