Featuring: WASP final conference at March 1st


The role of shipping in global supply chains and in promoting economic development is well established. Shipping and ports, however, generate also substantial negative social and environmental impacts. The increasing awareness of these impacts has resulted in an array of policy measures and industry initiatives and is often seen as one of the drivers behind new technologies.

The urgency of some of the challenges faced by the maritime business and by society call for increasing attention from the research community to addressing some of the sustainability issues further. In view of the above, the Kühne Logistics University (KLU) and its Hapag-Lloyd Center for Shipping and Global Logistics (CSGL) invite authors and practitioners to convene in Hamburg from the 2nd and 3rd of March 2023 for an International Academic Conference on Shipping, Sustainablity & Solutions (SSS).
