Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference of Logistics Engineering and Management, held in Chengdu, China, October 8-10, 2010. Sponsored by the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE.
This collection contains 666 papers that discuss the technical, managerial, and institutional issues facing the logistics industry in China, with an emphasis on understanding and solving the problems. Despite the global economic slowdown of 2008-2009, China's logistics industry continued to grow impressively. The global economic slowdown, however, helped to reveal weaknesses in both the structure and management of China's logistics sector. In particular, the industry suffers from a lack of standards and professionalism, and it generally operates with low efficiency. Moreover, China’s logistics market has opened to the outside world in recent year, with the result that logistics enterprises—whether state-owned, privately owned, or foreign-funded—must reorganize, integrate, leverage resources, and achieve positive synergy from today's competitive environment.
Participants from all over China and other parts of the world discuss such topics as.
- Logistics Policy and Strategy
- Infrastructure and Equipment of Logistics
- Logistics and Transport Information and Technology
- System Optimization and Simulation Models
- Logistics Finance and Economy
- Supply Chain Management
