  • Abstract:
    The Fourth International Forum on Shipping, Ports and Airports (IFSPA 2010) was successfully held from 15 to 18 October 2010, in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. This proceedings contains a collection of forty-two papers presented during the Conference. The topics covered include shipping economics, port strategy, airport management, logistics development in Asia, environmental issues in logistics, port efficiency and competition, and maritime safety and security. This conference theme, "Integrated Transportation Logistics: From Low Cost to High Responsibility", is meaningful and timely in light of today's heightened concerns about global climate change. The governments, business community and green parties of different countries are all keen to address the associated issues with strong commitment to achieve a balance of economy, environment and social objectives for a sustainable society. China, parallel to the rapid economic development, is also determined to step up its efforts to boost low-carbon economy as part of its strategy of promoting the transformation of economic development pattern. Along the track, the booming Chinese transportation logistics will develop a more comprehensive and integrated system to modernize its logistics industry. We welcome more sharing on these evolving subjects. Led by the C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, IFSPA is an annual international event devoted to maritime, aviation and logistics studies. It aims to provide an interactive platform for academics and industry practitioners to discuss and exchange views on contemporary issues facing the sectors, further advancing academia-industry cooperation. IFSPA 2010 was jointly sponsored by the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and School of Economics and Management, Southwest Jiaotong University. Following the success of previous IFSPAs which attracted more than 400 participants from different countries and territories, we are glad that the event has secured massive support from local governmental agencies and institutions on its coordination and implementation. Chengdu is an important centre of commerce and finance as well as a regional hub of transportation and logistics in southwest China. In recent years, it has undergone fast-paced development, with a number of logistics centres and parks established, and the move-in of some of the world's top logistics companies. We thank the Conference Secretariat who had offered both moral and technical support to the conference and this proceedings. In particular, we would like to thank Xinyu Sun, Joey Wong, Priscilla Lau, Justin Wong and Violette Wong. Finally, we greatly appreciate the hard work and contribution of the paper authors, members of the Organizing Committee and Paper reviewers.
