Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Canary Cluster of Transport and Logistics (CCTL) is a group of enterprises, institutions and business agents in relation to the transport and logistics sector in the Canary Islands. The relationships and the connections between its members are based on common interests in this particular sector, and therefore gives them a competitive advantage over new challenges of globalization which includes the development of more world-class clusters in Europe through internationalization and excellence.

The CCTL's mission is to improve the competitiveness of the production process by putting together and liaising all value chain's actors, namely producers, buyers, suppliers, research and academic institutions, policy-makers and other public authorities.

Canarias Aporta II project: A project funded by the regional government of the Canary Islands through the Canarian Society of Economic Development, SA, PROEXCA. Three members of the CCTL actively participated in this project. The main objective was the study of a new maritime line between the Canary Islands (Spain) and Tarfaya (Marocco).

Qantara Project- Spain External Border Cooperation Program (POCTEFEX) – For the CCTL, the aim of this project was to transfer its knowledge of the creation and consolidation of a cluster in the transport and logistic sector to the region of Souss-Massa-Drâa. The project has met his main objective and the cluster LOGIPOLE-SMD was created in September 2013, and, since then, the CCTL is studying and establishing possibilities of collaboration between the clusters and between their associates.

“InTraRegio Project”  - 7º FP (Region of Knowledge) – Towards an Intermodal Transport Network through innovative research-driven clusters in Regions of organised and competitive knowledge, the CCTL led two work-packets, supported two international events of the InTraRegio project and organised a workshop on the topic: "Port, Sea Terminal and Fleet Management" in Fuerteventura in November 2014. The project involved 18 Partners from the following 5 Regions: Canary Islands (Spain), Bremen (Germany), Calabria (Italy), Marmara (Turkey) and Ruse (Bulgaria).

Every year, the CCTL organises the SALT (Atlantic Transports and Logistics Exhibition) (http://www.saltcanarias.es/). The SALT is strategic for the transport, logistics and distribution sector, but also for other sectors of the local economy. This professional fair offers important opportunities to enterprises and entities as it promotes new possibilities for business and commercial contacts, to share knowledge and experiences and to discover new and innovating elements. In previous editions, representatives attended form different EU-countries, Morocco, Cape Verde, Mauritania, Senegal and Equatorial Guinea. The 4th edition was awarded as the Best Logistic Initiative of the Year in Spain In 2013.

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

The multidisciplinar and multistakeholder character of our cluster -including SMEs, larger companies, technology centers and Universities-, gives us a competitive advantage as a partner. All our members have long experience in the field of transport and logistics and are highly innovative.
