  • 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.
