Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

North-South Logistics and Transport Cluster (LT Cluster) Poland is an innovationoriented organization with a significant potential to develop a co-operation between business, research & development institutions and local governments. The strategic development plans of European Union assume a significant funding of the initiatives, as well as specific projects, undertaken at The Clusters. Our LT Cluster aspires to become a key cluster for North Poland region because it operates within logistic industry and already includes as members several significant companies ( Gdansk Airport, Special Economic Zone in Slupsk) and academic/R&D institutions (Gdansk Technical University , Electrotechnical Institute). The strategic goals of the Cluster include: • The creation of local multimodal hubs in the Pomeranian region and connecting them to international transport corridors. In this respect, Cluster is initiating investments and infrastructure projects. • Development of “green” technologies in the transport and logistics sector. To do this the Cluster is enhancing public awareness in that sector, as well as supporting the participation of cluster members and partners in common projects. • Innovation supporting the effectiveness of transport and logistics processes. Members are supported in innovative projects, which are being realised through national and international project teams. The Cluster is also working towards creating an independent R&D institution in the field of logistics.
