Theme and Objectives

Today’s business environment is changing significantly due to a steady progress towards more efficient organizational paradigms as well as product and process innovations. As companies have to compete on the global market with their products and services, especially maritime logistics and global supply chain solutions often determine their success. Recent developments in SCM as the management of intermodal transportation processes and sustainable solutions have proven to be very dynamic, prompting the players to constantly keep up with the latest state of research to stay competitive and agile.

The international supply chains of multinational corporations that include many different types of companies across the globe have become sophisticated and complex systems. Their coordination requires new and creative ideas that combine technical, analytical and economical know-how to create innovative solutions to sustain the competitive advantage of a high-performance supply chain.

The constant, successful exchange of ideas between the scientific community and practitioners is an ideal breeding-ground for innovative solutions in SCM and Logistics to encounter the ever-changing challenges companies are facing today
