This paper presents recent challenges and progress in real-world logistics. This research is carried out through inter-university collaboration and an industry-university partnership, which involves two universities (Waseda University and Khon Kaen University) and over 20 companies in manufacturing, logistics, trading and retailing industries. We address unmet needs in practice, and suggest possible new directions for logistics research.
