Call For Papers

Special Issue on: "Advances in Logistics and Transport"

Prof. Abdellatif Benabdelhafid, University of Le Havre, France

The increasing call for mass customisation in many industries has made today’s global supply chains very complex, requiring a multitude of parallel information and physical flows to be controlled to ensure high customer service levels.

Enterprises today are exploring different ways to achieve competitive advantage in their industry. Within the last decade, active sourcing from low-cost economies has taken place and has led to logistics networks becoming globalised and complex. As transportation and logistics costs rise in importance, inventory, handling, lot size and mode choice decisions have a larger effect on corporate profitability.

The aim of this special issue is report on the most recent developments in the area of logistics and transport.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advanced Logistics and Transport (ICALT’2013; taking place on 29-31 May, 2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
