CELDi is a multi-university, multi-disciplinary National Science Foundation sponsored Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC). CElDi’s main mission is to provide integrated solutions to logistics problems through modeling, analysis and intelligent-systems technologies.

CELDi’s industrial partners serve as the "thought-leaders" with strong existing and ongoing financial commitment to logistics research. This partnership between academic institutions and industry represents the

effective integration of private and public sectors to enhance the United States competitive edge in the global market place.

The current academic partners of CELDi include the University of Arkansas, Lehigh University, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Texas Tech University, Clemson University, the University of Missouri and Virginia Tech. Arizona State University is a formal member of the Center since summer 2008.

The activities of ASU as part of CELDi focus on issues related to efficient International Logistics practices as well as productivity and cost improvements in production and supply chain operations.

In particular, CELDi@ASU focuses on the following components of the supply chain: Design, Integration and Coordination, Transportation, and In-Plant Logistics. Technology transfer activities can be grouped in the following four categories:

• Direct industry participation in the research activities of the Center
• Implementation of research results in the plants of the industrial partners
• Publication of scholarly articles and applied research
• Education of undergraduate and graduate students
