Dear ECITL Community,
Dear Logistic-, Supply Chain- and ICT- experts!

We are glad to announce the

8th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics (ECITL)


which will be held from the

5 – 7 October 2015 in Bordeaux (France).


This year’s conference focus is on:

“Intelligent logistics solutions – a catalyst for digital economy”


Intelligent logistics solutions such as ITS, electronic freight, intelligent cargo, etc. are the main catalysts for innovative Transport Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Intelligent logistics solutions are mainly determined by increased use of inter-connected information and communication technology (ICT) including data sharing, knowledge transfer, cooperation and collaboration. While experts estimate that by the year 2020 ~30 000 000 000 inter-connected devices will be in circulation, today the Logistics- and Supply Chain Industries are in a revolution: The intelligent logistics solution approach extends the WEB2.0 technologies in logistics and supply chain management to a holistic digital economy.

The conference picks up this approach and in-depth technologies as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), etc. These technologies are not only essential for the introduction of Electronic Freight (e-freight); but they are also an innovative trend enabling sustainable logistics, intelligent cargo and resource-efficient employment of resources. The deployment of ITS helps to strengthen the entire logistics and supply chain network and to engineer more robust and resilient supply chains.

The 8th ECITL will highlight the emerging trends in the field of the deployment of ITS and will focus on the sub-themes:

  • (Co-operative) Intelligent Transport System for Logistics
  • eFreight
  • Intelligent Cargo
  • Logistics in Smart Cities / Urban Logistics
  • Sustainable Cooperation between Stakeholders in Logistic Value Chains
  • Safety and Security in Logistics and Supply Chains

During the ECITL professionals and specialists from the industry, governments and research in the field of Transport Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Information and Communication Technologies and Intelligent Transport Systems will come together to exchange knowledge, discuss innovative and emerging trends and to build national and international partnerships.

We are delighted welcoming you in Bordeaux.
