- Weastflows Mini Symposium “Open data in Intermodal Logistics”
30th May 2012 Breda, The Netherlands Weastflows is a project that aims to encourage a shift towards greener freight transport in the North West Europe region. To this end, project partners CQM and InforIT are developing the concept of an intermodal route plannern using open data solutions. The aim of this meeting is to present the preliminary results of the project, as a support to initiate a lively debate on the pros and cons of open data, the willingness/reluctance to share information and to form a community where a great deal of good could be achieved by sharing data. Therefore all practitioners are invited: companies that could potentially use an intermodal route planner as well as organizations that could supply data (carriers, third party logistics providers). More information is available on this presentation paper.

International Conference on Paperless Freight Transport Logistics – e-Freight 2011
10-11 May 2011
A key determinant of efficiency in freight logistics is the capability to draw maximum benefit from information and communication technologies.
In this, e -Freight denotes the vision of a paper-free, electronic flow of information associating the physical flow of goods with a paperless trail built by information and communication technologies. It includes the ability to track and trace freight along its journey across transport modes and to automate the exchange of cargo-related data for regulatory or commercial purposes.
To meet the above goals, cooperation is needed between the key transport stakeholders including users (shippers), transport integrators, carriers and terminal operators. Such co-operation relies on making information exchange more efficient. Further, the barrier for “connecting” to logistics networks relying on electronic exchange of information needs to be significantly lower than currently is the case.
- ESPO 2011 Conference – Optimising Port Performance
5-6 May 2011
Port performance is a concept that covers many layers but in the end, it should be recognised that the performance of a port depends on various factors external to the port itself. The ESPO 2011 Conference will explore this complex but fundamental theme with the help of port practitioners, (port) community stakeholders as well as policy and academic experts. ESPO is currently coordinating the EC co-funded project ‘PPRISM’ which stands for ‘Port PerfoRmance Indicators – Selection and Measurement’. The project involves five academic partners and aims to identify a key list of sustainable, relevant and feasible indicators to monitor the overall performance of the EU port system and assess its impact on the society, environment and the economy of the EU. The interim results of this project, which will form the basis of a European Port Observatory, will be presented and discussed at the conference. As always, the conference programme will include an update on relevant EU policy developments as well as a latest appraisal of the economic climate in which European ports operate. Finally, continuing the series of regional seminars held in Marseilles (2009) and Helsinki (2010), a special interest seminar will be held on port development in the East Mediterranean and Black Sea. http://www.espo.be/downloads/archive/16e04177-b409-4956-8db3-010e0876cfb7.pdf

- Inland Waterways – Crucial to this strategy will be the improvement of China’s inland waterway network. However, one question still to be answered is how will the maritime ports handle the increase in containers by barge, or indeed rail, as the terminal boom of the past decade has largely been built on the premise of receiving containers by truck. TOC Asia 2011 will examine how far those terminals are equipped to handle other modes.

- Cool Logistics 2010
20 – 22 September 2010
Major retailers are taking an increasingly proactive approach to sustainable procurement, including carbon footprint and waste reduction, plus ethical sourcing policies. While current initiatives are largely voluntary and market-driven, more stringent policy regimes may also loom on the horizon at both national and international level. Speakers at Cool Logistics 2010 will explore the impact of these concerns on perishable logistics and transport, including maritime, air and landside distribution, at a time of continued pressure to take operational costs out of cold supply chains. More than ever, efficiency appears to be the mantra – but what does this really mean in practice and can common efficiency solutions be found to address sustainability and cost concerns? The conference will also review the extent to which predicted transport capacity constraints – particularly for reefer containers – are impacting perishable supply chain planning and execution, and how to respond in the short and longer term.
