PERL Logistics

Platform for Education and Research in Logistics was created as a part of the Tempus No. 517414-SMHES project that aims to strengthen the development of training of logistics in Morocco.

As part of this project, three excellent platforms for training and research in logistics (PERL) were implemented: the PERL North located in Tangier, the PERL Centre located in Casablanca and PERL South located in Marrakech and Agadir.

The three PERL will play a major role in the technological and economic development in logistics field. Their design is based on the establishment of an approximation University / Company space to improve the employability of graduates in logistics and benefiting businesses by applied research in this area.

The South PERL covers two regions that of Marrakech, Tansift,Eelhaouz and the region of Agadir Souss Massa Daraa. In this project, the Marrakech region is represented by the University Cadi Ayad while the SMD region is represented by Universiapolis University.
