Clusters 2.0 will leverage the potential of European Logistics Clusters for a sustainable, efficient and fully integrated transport system. To do this, 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.
• making optimal use of an Open Network of Logistics Clusters
• enhance and advance towards a better co-ordination between logistics actors in clusters
• and to improve co-ordination and connectivity between European logistics clusters.
What will CLUSTERS 2.0 provide?
• Establishing CargoStream a European wide community for freight sharing and collaboration (demand side)
• Developing New Modular Loading Units and innovative handling and transhipment technology to accelerate handling processes within clusters for road and intermodal modes enabled by
• Enhanced services on the supply side introducing the concept of Proximity Terminal Networks (PTN) enabled by enhanced information and asset management
• Optimised handover and asset management through real time services at depots and terminals
• Newly developed governance models introducing the role of a neutral agent forming the basis for new business models
• Regulation and policy enhancing the set-up of collaborative cluster environments
During the next 3 years, the project will deploy challenging activities to meet important objectives, such as:
• Increase the engagement, performance and coordination of terminals and hubs in the clusters.
• Achieve a significant step forward in the European Transport performance through a hyper connected network of logistics hubs and clusters.
• Develop low cost, low capital and investment intensive enhanced goods handling and transhipment solutions.
Always applying feasible business models and building robust business plans for the solutions.
