2021.3.25（Thu）Awards and Commendations
【Awards and Commendations】Takuya Yamaguchi (M2) received Logistics Research Encouragement Award at the Japan Logistics Society.
The Logistics Research Encouragement Award, awarded by the Japan Logistics Society, is given to outstanding young logistics researchers who have achieved particularly outstanding results enrolled in educational and research institutions to which at least three regular members of the Japan Logistics Society belong.
In my master thesis, "Development of the global logistics intermodal network simulation model with large-scale parallel incremental assignment and application to the terrestrial ASEAN," I proposed the new model that can solve the issues in the past assignment models. In addition, I conducted policy simulations mainly focusing on the terrestrial ASEAN using the proposed model, and verified the effects of several possible infrastructure policy scenarios.
I am very proud to have received this prestigious award for my master thesis, as the compilation in my graduate school. From the beginning of my study, I have had many opportunities including fieldwork abroad and joint research, and have been educated through discussions in lab activities. I would like to express my deep gratitude to my supervisor Prof. Shibasaki and all the people involved in my study. After graduation, I am going to make further efforts to give back to society what I have learned at The University of Tokyo.
