Since 2012, the Green STRING Corridor has taken the initiative to hosting a number of network meetings involving the five logistics initiatives together with regional stakeholders from the business community, knowledge institutions and interest organizations.

  

We are very pleased that these network meetings have resulted in a joint "Declaration of Cooperation" which initially is a declaration of intent regarding closer cooperation. In a longer perspective the cooperation can support the opportunities for creating synergy between the companies and the clusters in the STRING region.

This cooperation network should use the unique opportunity of making an impact as one of the strongest and dense logistics areas in Europe. An area representing all modes of transport and logistics services and thereby important for any industry using logotstics services.

 

This new venture is focused on three areas:

1.

STRING logistics network: How can the cooperation develop a network, which creates international awareness together with matchmaking and events for its members?

 
2,

Support for innovation: How can the cooperation foster innovation among the members of the clusters through joint projects and facilitation?

 
3,

Platform for the exchange of knowledge: How can the cooperation share relevant knowledge between the clusters and act as a knowledge and information centre?

 

This venture represents a further development of the logistics initiatives and a more extensive and deeper cooperation between these initiatives, which together can contribute to growth, employment and innovation in the transport and logistics industry in the STRING-region.
