MULTILOG 2024

Multimodal Transport amidst Deglobalization Trends

June 6 – 7, 2024
Universidad del Mar, Huatulco, Mexico

The growing need for more efficient cargo and passenger transport systems and a healthier environment imply a shift of paradigm in mobility, transport, and logistics. Intermodal transport takes advantage of the strengths of different transport modes in one integrated transport chain, thereby improving efficiency and economic performance of the system. Enhancement of both network sustainability and resilience is an important criterion to explore trade-offs associated with intermodal freight and passenger transport. Scientific knowledge needs to be allied with further technical and economic studies to overcome barriers such as insufficient interconnectivity, lack of cooperation and competition between the modes, as well as the need for harmonized security and safety procedures. This conference aims at bringing together talented researchers and industry practitioners from around the world to discuss and stimulate the exchange of ideas that can address problems in multimodal transport of passenger and freight and a special focus is put on maritime transport as currently worldwide there is a serious concern on how to address the disruption in the supply chain of goods with the increase of inequality.

Authors are welcome to submit their contributions to the following, but not limited to areas such as:

  • Transport Policies
  • Multimodal cargo and passenger transport
  • Multimodal transport in developing and emerging countries
  • Operational research in multimodal transport and heuristics
  • Changes in methods for freight movement and delivery
  • Methods for travel delay reduction
  • Human behaviour in transport
  • Synchromodality and sustainability in logistics
  • New technologies for design, construction, operation and maintenance of transport infrastructure
  • The use of big data, ML or AI in transport analytics and safety improvements
  • Telecommunications and energy management in multimodal Transport
  • and many more

Paper deadlines and requirements:
