COORDINATED REGIONAL LOGISTICS
Start date: Aug 31, 2005,
End date: Sep 29, 2007
CORELOG addresses the definition and operative testing of regional logistics policies and actions to be coordinated among institutional actors, responsible for policy making, financing and investment decisions, and actors related to the transport market (manufacturing companies, logistics providers, transport operators), whose supply-chain strategies and decisions strongly affect the spatial pattern and the modal split of the freight transport.CORELOG is articulated in three main phases:- As-is review and analysis phase, to understand the main drivers of supply chain management strategies of companies;- Definition of regional policy guidelines promoting logistics cooperation among private companies and coordinating different types of policies impacting on transports in regions (spatial planning, industrial, transport, logistic policies);- Implementation phase, addressing the effectiveness of the proposed policies by pilot test involving private companies, with a bottom-up approach. Expected Results: The project aims at transnational strategic guidelines for regional policymaking and implementation of sustainable freight transport through public-private co-ordination and related checklists for policymaking in transport and logistics, considering actors and needs, impacts and benefits on territories, and critical success factors and partners’ experiences. The project should establish lasting partnerships within regions, between institutional actors and private sector representatives for sharing and monitoring the policies' impact on freight transport. Moreover, pilot solutions dealing with organisational, market and technology interventions will be implemented and feasibility studies for multiplying/full-scale implementation of pilot projects will be conducted. Also the knowledge of operators and manufacturers’ own innovative and sustainable logistics practices will be enhanced.
