The conference will be attended by numerous company representatives working in different areas in the logistics and air cargo sector, who will be sharing the latest trends and their personal expertise with students studying logistics.

Conference speakers will include executives from the aviation, international logistics & transportation sectors as well as other service provider companies.

Pegasus Cargo vice president, Aydin Alpa explains: “After organising our conferences in collaboration with different universities in Istanbul, we are holding our sixth conference for the first time in Izmir.

“Through these events we have the opportunity to bring together the real life know-how of the sector professionals with students who will be the logistics professionals of the future.

“While we share our valuable experiences with a view to prepare our students for the world of business, we also gain useful feedback from them about the new generation’s perceptions of international logistics and transportation. Izmir our next stop is also a great tourism city in Turkey.

“We are delighted to be holding this conference with such a reputable institution as Dokuz Eylul University.”

Pegasus Cargo serves 97 destinations in 38 countries; 33 in Turkey and 64 internationally and in 2015, it increased the amount of cargo it handled compared to 2014 by 17 per cent.
