The Universidad del Pacífico has been selected by the Pan-American Society of Transportation Research (Sociedad Panamericana de Investigación en Transporte, PANAMSTR) to host the XXI Pan-American Conference of Transport and Logistics 2020. For the first time, Peru will be the host country for this important event that has been held for over 40 years in different countries (Latin America, the USA, Portugal and Spain).

We have welcomed the challenge of providing all participants a great experience at the most important event for transport and logistics in the region. We will provide timely information about the call for papers and all other event details. Through this conference, Universidad del Pacífico hopes to promote discussions about state-of-the-art research and practices on transport and logistics, from the perspective of public, private and academic sectors, to foster the development of public policies that can benefit all citizens.
