New publication “An unstructured big data approach for country logistics performance assessment in global supply chains”

Prof. Dr. Aseem Kinra (Professorship of Global Supply Chain Management), in collaboration with colleagues from the Copenhagen Business School (Prof. Kim Hald and Raghava Mukkamala) and Ryerson University (Prof. Ravi Vatrapu), has published a new article on the measurement of country logistics performance in the International Journal of Operations and Production Management.

In this paper, the authors lay the design of a novel textual analytics approach that is based upon unstructured big data. Not only does the developed approach generate results in the form of logistics performance assessments, but it also contributes towards the development of more informed weights of different logistics performance categories that are missing in the existing approaches. Moreover, the approach tackles the benchmarking task with reasonable accuracy and generates useful assessments from a managerial and policy-making perspective.
