We are honored and pleased to welcome you to The 22nd International Conference on Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation as part of the International Multidisciplinary Modeling & Simulation Multiconference (I3M 2020). As we are all aware, the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been totally unprecedented. Already, more than 28 million people worldwide have tested positive and pushing close to one million people have perished as a result of COVID-19. The physical distancing and self-isolation required for mankind to continue to fight the unmitigated transmission/spread of the disease has compelled our having to meet virtually for the very first time in the long histories of HMS and of I3M and its other component conferences. Although its long tradition, still today this conference is particularly timely in view of the tremendous importance of industrial logistics, multimodal transportation, supply chain management and Logistics within the current economical and scientific framework. This is even truer considering that improvements in the aforementioned sectors are essential in many economic activities and therefore with high application potentials. With this in mind, we believe that the scientific program provides a special opportunity for academic scientists, researches, industry representatives, engineers and other representatives to exchange experience, gain new knowledge and establish contacts. We very sincerely thank all the authors who have contributed papers to HMS this year, and the HMS 2020 International Program Committee members and reviewers for spending time and effort to read, evaluate, and provide suggestions for improving the quality of the final papers. We wish everyone a productive HMS 2020 conference.
