2nd European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics successfully concluded


The conference, which was focused on “Energy Efficient and Sustainable Logistics” was held on the 29th and 30th of October in Venice. The encouragement of the participants led to the decision to arrange the “3rd European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics” on the 4th and 5th of November, 2010 in Bremen – organized by the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL).

The number of participants demonstrates once again the importance of Freight Logistics as the backbone for the European economy and the need to harmonize the interfaces between different transport modes and institutions in Europe.

Nowadays logistics based on “Information and Communication Technologies” (ICT) plays a vital role for the sector. Delays in the availability of necessary freight information accounts for a serious loss of time in transport (e.g. of containers), showing clearly that the optimization of information logistics can lead to a substantial reduction of logistics costs whilst at the same time reducing the carbon footprint of logistics operations.

The audience came from industry, administration and academia. This multidisciplinary group allowed the conference participants to approach the conference issue “Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Logistics” from different angles and interests. The conference topics were backed-up by the research results of several European research projects, namely EURIDICE, FREIGHTWISE, INTEGRITY, KOMODA, SMARTFREIGHT and SMART-CM.

In addition to the high profile line-up of speakers the conference encouraged the exchange of ideas on various topics as part of parallel interactive sessions on day two. ISL – coordinator of the EU funded project “INTEGRITY – Intermodal Global Door-to-Door Container Supply Chain Visibility” organized a session on “Container Security”.

The encouragement of the participants led to the common decision to organize the “3rd European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics” on the 4thand 5th of November, 2010 in Bremen. The local host for this conference will be the “Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics” (ISL) co-located in Bremen and Bremerhaven.
