Toyota Material Handling launches TMHNA University research program

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Toyota Material Handling North America (TMHNA) announces the TMHNA University Research Program, a new sponsored research program created to drive the next generation of technology for the entire supply chain, logistics and material handling industry. The new program is accepting proposals via the website, www.UniversityResearchProgram.com, through Aug. 31, 2016.

Through the program, TMHNA is seeking research proposals from full-time professors or researchers at North American universities. The mission of the TMHNA University Research Program is to encourage and support professors and researchers applying their knowledge of engineering and technical fields to the supply chain, logistics and material handling industry.

“It’s exciting to see the innovative and dynamic products our industry consistently introduces to the supply chain world. We created this program to foster more innovation for the growth of our industry,” said Brett Wood, president and chief executive officer for Toyota Material Handling North America. “The goal of the new TMHNA University Research Program is to draw synergies and collaboration between collegiate research and TMHNA, enhancing our mission to provide our customers with smarter, more efficient, effective solutions.”

Proposals will be evaluated on their impact on the future of supply chain, logistics or material handling, as well as the planning and feasibility of the timeline and budget. After Aug. 31, 2016, TMHNA will evaluate the submissions and may choose multiple proposals as finalists. Professors or researchers with selected proposals will be notified by Oct. 1, 2016, with projects starting in November 2016.
