The NeLoC project provided a networking forum for existing and planned logistics centres in the Baltic Sea Region and it has enabled the exchange of experiences in planning and operating logistics centres.The project promoted the role of logistics centres in regional development as well as national and international logistics chains with emphasis laid on intermodal solutions. Further, the project improved the general competitiveness of the logistics companies through providing a setting for creating Pan-Baltic partnerships and easy access to ICT-tools. Achievements: NeLoC has produced a Best Practice Handbook for Logistics Centres in the Baltic Sea Region containing information for sustainable and effective logistics centre network activities and a Service Concept Report for Logistics Centres comprising innovative service concepts, which can be exploited within the frame of a logistics centre. The project has created and implemented a Pan-Baltic co-operation forum for logistics centres Baltic Sea Forum on Logistics Centres – LC-Forum.
