    Logistics between Asia and Europe: Professor Becker hosts the Logistics Track at the CIBRC 2017 in Islamabad

    The 6th CUST International Business Research Conference is a conference hosted by the Capital University of Science and Technology in Islamabad, Pakistan, and the Bremen Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics (LogDynamics). It took place in October 2017 in Islamabad. The topic of the conference was "Emerging Business Opportunities in the Region with Focus on CPEC". The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is part of China's plan to create new trade routes with Europe as an alternative to the existing shipping routes. After its completion, the CPEC will provide land access from China to Pakistan's Gwadar port.

    Professor Becker acted as Chair of the Logistics Track, where various logistics-related solutions were presented and discussed. During his visit, additional plans for further collaboration in research were made.
