The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Transportation and Logistics has expanded its network of international supply chain education centers with a new location in Bogota, Colombia, which opened earlier this month.

MIT and LOGyCA, a logistics company based in Colombia, have created the Center for Latin-American Logistics Innovation, which opened on March 1. The school and the company signed a 10-year, $19 million agreement to open and run the center.

LOGyCA, a consultant firm which has worked with over 17,000 businesses in Colombia and Latin America over the past 20 years, plans to house the center in its Bogota headquarters.
