The 5th annual International Physical Internet Conference will take place June 18‐22 in the Netherlands, at the University of Groningen. The conference aims to provide an open forum for researchers, industry representatives, government officials and citizens to together explore, discuss, introduce leading edge concepts, methodologies, recent projects, technological advancements, start‐up initiatives, for current and future Physical Internet implementation. The conference will continue building on the successful 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 conferences with up to 250 participants. Conference topics include interconnected logistics, physical internet fundamentals, business models, governance and implementation, cross‐chain control, synchromodal transportation, IT systems, stakeholders and their roles.
The 2018 International Physical Internet Conference organizers invite you to maximize your organization’s visibility before, during, and after the conference in Groningen through the following sponsorship opportunities. You will reach not only the professionals who are expected to attend the conference, but also many individuals who visit the conference website and receive our promotional or post‐conference materials.
Bachelor and master students are invited to join in an international competition to work on an assignment related to the physical internet. A jury will select the winning team. A limited number of grants will be made available to the best team to visit the conference and present the work submitted.
The Physical Internet Doctoral Colloquium provides PhD candidates with the opportunity to present and discuss their research with fellow PhD candidates and established researchers. One of the key elements of the seminar will be to discuss positioning of the PhD project in well‐known and established lines of research and linking it in a founded way to the physical internet. A limited number of grants will be made available to excellent PhD candidates to cover travel and hotel costs.

As we face great challenges in developing a sustainable global supply chain in the face of continuing population growth, concerns with climate change, growing urbanization, and inadequate
infrastructure, it is essential to bring non‐government organizations (NGOs), industry, government, academia, and others together to examine and discuss present and future research and strategy surrounding the solutions suggested by the Physical Internet Concept. Please accept our gratitude in
advance for partnering with us through your sponsorship of this conference and for enabling us to host the 5th annual International Physical Internet Conference in Groningen.
