Call for papers: "New Approaches for Transport, Logistics and Transformation"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Supply Chain and Inventory Management.

Transport, logistics and transportation continue to present new challenges and demand that researchers and practitioner find new and powerful approaches for dealing with the everyday complexities that affect operational and management processes. To this end, there is a growing effort towards the application of artificial intelligence techniques as well as mathematical modelling and software development.

Given that, the aim of this special issue is twofold: to appraise the current state of research, and to provide advanced approaches for the future development of the field. Therefore, the issue calls for papers that go beyond the current state of the art and have the potential to stimulate and guide future research efforts delineating critical paths for future research.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2014 International Workshop on Innovation for Logistics (WIN-LOG 2014), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Bulk terminals
  • Container shipping
  • Container terminals
  • Control of logistics processes
  • Decision support in logistics
  • Environmental impact of logistic operations
  • Green logistics
  • Green supply chain operations
  • Logistics and manufacturing
  • Multimodal transportation
  • Naval training systems
  • Port management
  • Production planning and control
  • Railways
  • Resource planning
  • Supply chain management
  • Supply chain risks and vulnerabilities
  • Supply chain security
  • Supply chains
  • Sustainability in logistics
  • Traceability along the supply chain
  • Transportation and distribution
  • Urban transportation
  • Vessel traffic systems
  • Warehouse services and management
