Bio

My name is Xavier Brusset. I hold a PhD from the Université catholique de Louvain as well as an Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense university.

I have been teaching Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the Toulouse Business School, ESSCA and now SKEMA since 2009. My research focuses on the relationship between the supply chain partners and the impact of information on their behavior.

This stems from my previous experience as a co-founder in Argentina of a web-based service to help shippers and carriers to communicate more efficiently about cargoes to transport and available trucks. This web platform was set up to make the transport industry more efficient. The problem of efficiency is pervasive in all the relationships between the different links in any supply chain.

This is why I became interested in the information sharing and the collaboration between suppliers and customers. I am now also interested in how the vagaries of the weather affect sales of consumer goods. If the weather is hot, people will buy icecream. But what happens if the weather is cloudy? If it rains? The retailer, the manufacturer will not be happy if there is a wet or cool summer.

The purpose of my research is to help such businesses to reduce their dependency on the weather. I have already published a paper on the impact of the weather on sales of clothes in France. Lately, I have also been involved in how to reduce all the risks that can affect a supply chain. For example, I looked into the possible impact of truck delays, mistakes in orders, etc.

My findings have been published in academic journals such as The European Journal of Operational Research, the International Journal of Production Economics, Computers and Industrial Engineering, RAIRO Operations Research.

I edited and co-authored a textbook about business cases in distribution. Previously, I also worked in financial markets and represented two French firms in Argentina. Every two years, I organize a Colloquium on European Research in Retailing (CERR) for European researchers. The fourth edition is scheduled for June 2018 in The United Kingdom.
