    Georgia Institute of Technology has launched a research center in Costa Rica to help develop new supply-chain technologies. The Georgia Tech Trade-chain Innovation and Productivity (TIP) center in Costa Rica aims to combine analytics, digital services and supply chain management to address trade-chain productivity.

    The facility, bankrolled by an undisclosed Costa Rica-based GT alumn, is staffed by three researchers.

    The purpose of the center is to help Costa Rica boost its supply-chain innovation and productivity, said Don Ratliff, executive director of GT’s Supply Chain and Logistics Institute.

    The center will also help GT researchers understand issues involving international trade and develop solutions to address supply-chain problems, Ratliff told me from Florida’s St. George Island, where he lives half the year.

    Besides a research hub, the TIP center will serve as a business incubator — helping tech startups and established companies that seek to develop cross-country supply chains

    The TIP center is a joint development between the Chamber of Industries in Costa Rica and GT’s Supply Chain and Logistics Institute, School of Industrial and Systems Engineering and College of Management.
