Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is my greatest pleasure, on behalf of the Organizing Committee to welcome you to attend the International Smart Logistics & Supply Chain Congress China 2018 (ISLC), to be held on January 16-17, in Shanghai, China.

China has become the biggest logistics market in the world, and logistics has played a very important role in manufacturing and retail industries. While compared with other developed countries, the logistics costs in China are still very high and the logistics efficiency is still very low. It is becoming more and more urgent in China to improve the performance of logistics.

The developments of smart manufacturing and new retail have even magnified the problem, and it has become a common sense to accelerate logistics industry and to transform its development. The maturity of new technologies such as internet, AI, big data, cloud computing, VR/AR, blockchain, etc, enables the digital transformation of logistics. Moreover, with the strong supports from the government, smart logistics has already become a popular trend in China.

Besides digital transformation to improve performance, the smart manufacturing and new retail enterprises also require logistics to be more involved into their supply chain management process. Therefore, more and more 3PL extend their businesses to supply chain management to better serve their customers.

It’s under this background, the International Smart Logistics & Supply Chain Congress China 2018 comes into place. And it’s designed to gather manufacturing, retail and logistics experts both from home and abroad together to explore the real needs for smart logistics, the future trends, and the opportunities & challenges ahead. The congress also will introduce the best practices in smart logistics and supply chain management around the world.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you in Shanghai!

Best Regards,

Organizing committee of the International Smart Logistics & Supply Chain Congress China 2018
