Clusters 2.0

It will use an Open Network of Logistics Clusters operating in the frame of Ten-T and supporting local, regional and European development, while keeping neutral the local impacts such as congestion, noise, land use and local pollution levels

Clusters 2.0

“If we want to reach the EU objective on modal shift for all transportation beyond 300 km and attract and strengthen competitiveness of local industries at the same time, we need to drive the development of an open collaborative network of hyper connected logistics multimodal clusters building on Ten-T”

CLUSTERS 2.0 will leverage the full potential of European Logistics Clusters for a sustainable, efficient and fully integrated transport system

The team

Logistics clusters still do not leverage their full potentials. Clusters 2.0 project has taken the challenge and incorporated all different kind of stakeholders that will be involved in specific Business Cases so value of Clusters 2.0 developments is demonstrated for all different kind of stakeholders participating in the logistics chain. One of the success factors of the project is to validate and demonstrate business cases making use of an Open Network of Logistics Clusters.

To achieve that, Clusters 2.0 incorporates the variety of organizations, roles and competences needed to succeed in this great challenge. It is worthwhile, stressing that many different distinctive key roles and competences are covered with the 29 Clusters 2.0 Partners for Clusters 2.0 project implementation.

Collaboration methodology within logistics clusters document made public

Initial version of Cluster Community System Tool document has been published. The current document aims to explain and to particularize how a collaborative methodology within logistics clusters could be built towards the introduction of the innovative concept of the “massification” project. The present document is considered as the outcome of ‘Demand driven roles and local governance for smart specialized logistics clusters’ activity, and it has to be considered as a living document.

Initial version of Cluster Community System Tool document has been published

Initial version of Cluster Community System Tool document has been published The document presents the final shape of the Cluster Community System (CluCS) tool which results from an interactive process of progressive improvements. CluCS is an IT platform which functions as a connector between the Cluster’s different sub-systems and allows a coordinated management of multiple hubs with different specializations creating synergies and linking the Cluster to different TEN-T corridors. The document defines also the requirements for CluCS test phase. Read…
