The cluster for logistics is one of eight clusters within the Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters. The cluster focuses on research and development to increase sustainability in economic, social and environmental development in the area logistics.
The Swedish Manufacturing R&D Clusters is an organisation with the objective to identify and initiate common areas for research that will strengthen the competitiveness of all manufacturing companies in Sweden. In 2020 RISE was commissioned to coordinate the clusters that at the same time have broadened their target group to all companies with manufacturing in Sweden.
Today there are 8 clusters focusing on different manufacturing expert areas. Four of the clusters cover manufacturing processes and four clusters cover areas that support all manufacturing processes.
Logistics is an integral part of the production system, where customer expectations and market competition require high volumes, high availability and high variation of components through the supply chain. At the same time, the system must not violate environmental sustainability, it shall be cost-effective and ensure material availability and quality, as well as be flexible and agile, yet robust and resilient.
The goal of the cluster is to increase the sustainability of economic, social and environmental development, by:
The aim is to develop economically and environmentally sustainable manufacturing systems capable of effectively providing the market with the innovative products of the future. Through the cluster's working methods, we strengthen Sweden's continued success as a sustainable industrial nation. You can win this by participating:
