TBA is the main sponsor of the 4th International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems will be held in Rotterdam 27-29 August 2014.
The objective of this conference is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas on the latest developments in the field of logistics and maritime systems among participants from universities and related industries, and to seek opportunities for collaboration among the participants. Logistics activities worldwide have intensified in the wake of globalization and increased international trade. As a result, global supply chain networks are becoming more complex as they typically involve maritime transport, inland waterways and onshore road and rail transportation systems.
The first conference of this series took place in Busan, Korea in 2010 integrating various predecessor conferences like the International Conference on Intelligent Logistics Systems (IILS), held in Busan, Korea (2005), Brisbane, Australia (2006), Kitakyushu, Japan (2007), Shanghai, China (2008), and Gold Coast, Australia (2009), and the Maritime Logistics (MLOG) conference held in Singapore (2009). Later LOGMS conferences were held in Bremen (2012) and Singapore (2013).
