The Transport and Logistics Arena was launched in November 2011 during the 1st CISB Annual Meeting with a partnership with the Lindholmen Science Park (LSP) in Sweden in a workshop to connect partners, discuss challenges for the area and propose solutions.

The arena took off with the partnership between CISB and the Centre of Innovation in Port Logistics and Infrastructure – CILIP/USP that performed a study in August 2013 about the main challenges faced by the sector in Brazil.

After this the focus was directed to the challenges of ports and maritime logistics in Brazil.

These are areas related to CILIP/USP that have synergy with the Gothenburg hub where LSP and Chalmers University (CISB member) are located.
