Robinson Labs to accelerate innovation
C.H. Robinson has launched C.H. Robinson Labs, an innovation centre where the company will design, test and scale the next strategies for logistics and supply chains to create smarter solutions for C.H. Robison’s customers and carriers.
Tim Gagnon, vice president of analytics and data science at C.H. Robinson, will lead the centre, informally known as Robinson Labs, and the dedicated data research teams in Minneapolis, Chicago, Silicon Valley in the USA and Warsaw in Poland.
Robinson Labs will work hand in hand with the company’s technology team of 1,000 data scientists, engineers and developers. Once solutions have been tested and proven, the teams will cooperate to scale them across C.H. Robinson to the benefit of 124,000 customers and 76,000 contract companies. (mw)
