Hessen Logistics – the network for the logistics and transport industry

Increasing complexity in logistics services is creating highly complex, fragmented value chains involving a diverse set of players. Transport chains are so complex that they are only partially understood by many players, and there is an increasing lack of knowledge with regard to understanding upstream and downstream links in the transport chain.

The Hessen Logistics cluster provides companies (especially SMEs), universities, research institutions and start-ups with countless networking opportunities along logistical value chains. Through events and deep dives, Hessen Logistics promotes the transfer of knowledge and dialogue between stakeholders and experts from various specialist areas and sparks new ideas for its cluster members.
A lack of knowledge can make logistics systems susceptible to disruption, as complex systems do not react immediately to global challenges and transformation processes and therefore have decisive disadvantages when it comes to surviving global, cut-throat competition.
Hessen Logistics makes use of existing synergy effects between players and builds sustainable synergies between players as a means of promoting innovative solutions.

The focus of the cluster’s work lies in strengthening combined transport and sustainable commercial transport as well as digitalisation and data management in logistics.
