Profile

Rob Zuidwijk is professor of Ports in Global Networks at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). The chair, endowed by the Erasmus Trustfund and created on 1 December 2014, focuses on three topics: cc-ordination for sustainable global supply chains, synchromodal transport networks (a flexible and integral deployment of different modes of transport on a network to better meet customer demand and sustainability objectives), and inter-organisational systems in logistics.

His work has been published in journals like California Management Review, Transportation Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Communications of the ACM, and Production and Operations Management. He has participated and coordinated funded research projects in the area of international logistics and container transport.

He teaches freight transport systems, intermodal transportation, international logistics and supply chain management, and inter-organizational systems in logistics to BSc, MSc, and PhD students, and he is also involved in post-experience courses.

Professor Rob Zuidwijk makes a significant contribution to Smartport, a strong research community in port-related research for which RSM and EUR are one of the main stakeholders. He is also Academic Director of RSM’s Executive Master in Customs and Supply Chain Compliance programme, a new part-time master degree programme to increase knowledge about European customs law, international supply and logistics chains and information management which starts at RSM in March. Further, he is also Academic Director of the MSc in Maritime Economics and Logistics.

Professor Zuidwijk received his PhD in Mathematics from Erasmus University and has held a one-year visiting position at the University of California at Los Angeles.
