The 6th ECITL Conference will be held in Zaragoza (Spain). Zaragoza is the perfect place for logistics in the southwest of Europe. The geostrategic position of Zaragoza and its region of Aragon, with 80 % of the Spanish GDP, is a competitive advantage for leading logistic infrastructures. Several global players like Zara and Caladero, as well as General Motors (in the hinterland of Zaragoza) are situated in this region.
The 6th ECITL will be hosted at the Aragon Institute of Technology (ITA) in Zaragoza, co-organized by the Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC). It is located in the northern part of the city, close to the engineering and architecture university on the River Ebro Campus (ten minutes from the city center). ITA is a non-profit Technology Centre, whose main objective is the promotion of research, development and innovation in the business sector, acting as a catalyst for productivity and competitiveness in the region. The Logistics Division of the Aragon Technology Center is recognized by the Spanish Ministry as the National Center of Knowledge in the application of ICT in the field of logistics and our objective is to generate, adapt, and transfer knowledge, applying ICT to solve logistic problems to develop collaborative and sustainable logistics. ITA also manages the National Public Demonstrator of ICT4Logistics with the aim of offering companies space to demonstrate how ICT can help create solutions in the field of logistics.
