Netherlands based TBA is proud to be the main sponsor for the 4th International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems, held in Rotterdam from 27-29 August 2014.
The conference will act as 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 hopes to seek opportunities for collaboration between attendees.
Logistics activities worldwide have intensified in the wake of globalisation and increased international trade. As a result, global supply chain networks are becoming more complex – a mixture 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 including; the International Conference on Intelligent Logistics Systems (IILS), previously held in Busan, Korea (2005), Brisbane, Australia (2006), Kitakyushu, Japan (2007), Shanghai, China (2008), and the Gold Coast, Australia (2009), alongside the Maritime Logistics (MLOG) conference held in Singapore (2009).
Previous LOGMS conferences were held in Bremen (2012) and Singapore (2013).
Regarded as the economic heart of the Netherlands, Rotterdam is a perfect host for this year’s conference. Housing Europe’s largest port, and recently voted the world’s best festival city, delegates are sure to enjoy.
Visitors will have cause to stay, with an opportunity to visit the port during the World Port Days event held from 5-7 September 2014.
