Call For Papers

Globalisation, liberalisation and free trade agreements have brought about a new landscape in global transportation. Furthermore, global outsourcing, increased competition, innovation, economic uncertainty and environmental concerns have created a new competitive space for the industry. These developments post a paradigm shift in organisational objectives from the conventional view of increasing profit, reducing the risk and inventory, and improving service utilisation to modern view of improving revenue by working with just-in-case inventory, achieving minimal carbon footprint, increasing global presence with continued mergers and acquisitions, and enhancing logistics efficiency with enhanced corporate governance.
Nowadays, the transportation industry is continually replacing mechanical systems with electronic systems. Emerging technologies and applications frequently go through an awkward stage and the logistics industry is no exception. Duplication of information, isolated systems, and non-standardisation of hardware/ software/ network protocols will ultimately result in a less cost-effective vehicle. The growing need for microcontroller and sensor technology is allowing Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to create complex systems that can provide levels of vehicle control and safety unheard of ten years ago. Applications of electronic systems include powertrain, body and chassis, safety systems, infotainment, and dashboard and convenience technologies such as Hall-effect, tyre pressure, and accelerometer sensor technologies applied to various transport vehicles to create a new milestone. Given the importance of these developments, we envisages innovation and improvements in applications of information and communication technology (ICT), RFID technology, global positioning systems (GPS), electronic road pricing (ERP) and barcode technologies in the logistics and transport sector, thereby improving supply chain efficiency by reducing the carbon footprint, inventory and cost.

Objectives of the Conference:

The main objectives of the conference are:
To present high-quality research and developments in the area of electronics-enabled logistics
To help professionals, researchers, academicians, consultants and practitioners working in the area of logistics to share the cutting-edge information on current developments
To envisage new ideas that can lead to innovative findings
To develop new methodologies that can solve complex logistics and transportation problems
The international dimension is emphasised in order to meet the increasing demands of transportation requirements.
