Ocean Transport Logistics: Making Global Supply Chain Effective

The 5th International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems will be held in Hong Kong on 27-29 August 2015.The LOGMS Conference is into its 5th run this year after the inaugural meeting in 2010 by integrating a few predecessor conferences such as the Intelligent Logistics Systems Conference Series and the Maritime Logistics Conference. It was initiated with the idea to give specific attention to the logistics related to maritime transportation, especially container terminals and container lines. Since then it has expanded to represent a truly global event for researchers in this direction.

The theme of LOGMS 2015 is “Ocean Transport Logistics: Making Global Supply Chain Effective”. As supply chains increasingly become global, more operations are outsourced and moved offshore which in turn highlights ocean container transport as a critical element of any such supply chain. Our conference goal is to offer a forum for exchanging ideas among participants from universities and related industries on the latest developments in the field of logistics and maritime systems, especially its impact on the global supply chain. We also hope to provide constructive opportunities for collaboration, exchange and teamwork at this event.

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) ,Singapore (2013) and Rotterdam (2014).
