The regional agglomeration of logistics firms – logistics clusters – is a new concept in spatial development and goods distribution. As a business model, logistics clusters are expected to foster the emergence of eco-friendly transportation chains and to increase the profitability of firms due to synergies and economies of scale. However, aside from a small number of successful examples, many attempts for establishing logistics clusters have failed. In addition, growth barriers are often reported. Thus, entrepreneurial visions including clear strategies of spatial logistics development are needed to successfully develop logistics clusters. The expert workshop aimed to identify the key success factors as well as to derive recommendations for governments and industry to support measures and regulations for the successful implementation of logistics clusters.
Core questions to be addressed during the workshop are:
The expert workshop offered a platform to discuss these subjects. The event brought together research expertise, experience of logistics operators (logistics parks managers, logistics providers, logistics clubs), and the perspective of public actors (local authorities, public platform manager, logistics clusters).
In connection with the expert workshop, a conference with lectures open to the general public was held.
