The 18th Panhellenic Logistics Conference that took place in Thessaloniki at the MET Hotel on 18-19 Nov 2014 featured a wide variety of stimulating papers and inspiring keynote speakers.

18th Panhellenic Logistics Conference

From SEERC, Dr Lambros Lazouras and Mr Andreas Baresel-Bofinger presented two well-received papers entitled ‘Adoption of Smart Logistics: From Testbeds to Successful Implementation’ and ‘Drivers and Barriers to Green Freight Transportation: Industry evidence from UK and India’. One of the main messages of the conference was the role of (smart) logistics and supply chain management as a key enabler for innovation in the light of  the global renaissance of manufacturing, and in particular the re-industrialisation of Europe. As pointed out by keynote speaker Thorsten Hülsmann from the Efficiency Cluster Logistics Ruhr of Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics, big companies, such as the German car manufacturer Volkswagen, achieve up to 65% of their total created value through their supply chain management. Prof. Sirpa Kurppa from MTT Agrifood Research Finland, a specialist in agroecology and environmental sustainability of food production systems illustrated the development of the green economy towards the concept of bioeconomy and directed the audience’s view to the future trend of bio-ecomimicry (industrial ecology).
