"I am impressed by the dynamic of the team and the quality of the faculty. Therefore, I am not surprised that, in certain fields, Hull is a leading university in the UK."
Project team member Dumal Welikala is a researcher in web development and data analytics at the Logistics Institute, having recently graduated from the University with a BSc in Computer Science.
He said: “The learning curve is very steep, but it is great to be involved in this study and you really feel you are playing a significant part in it.
“I feel incredibly proud to be working with industry leaders on a project which is aimed, ultimately, at improving how the world works.”
Paul Sheehan, an intern logistics and supply chain analyst who's studying for a Masters in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, is also part of the project team.
He said: “The Logistics Institute is a place where academia and business meets. Because of that it presents great opportunities to develop your knowledge and be exposed to organisations and individuals at very high levels.”
