TORONTO (ICIS)--BASF has joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) supply chain exchange, the Germany-based international chemicals major said on Tuesday.

The supply chain exchange provides networking and educational opportunities within MIT and its Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL).

BASF said it would benefit from interaction with MIT researchers on industry issues and have privileged access to CTL’s symposia series, student recruiting and communications programmes.

“Joining the supply chain exchange provides a great opportunity for BASF to continue our demonstrated track record of developing sustainable innovations throughout our supply chain as well as better aligning our global supply chain with our corporate business strategy to the benefit of all our stakeholders, Robert Blackburn, BASF’s senior vice president and head of global supply chain, said.
