CLOSER - together for sustainable transport solutions

CLOSER - ellastbil vid sjö - smal

Development is progressing rapidly and not least in the transport sector. With the aid of new technologies, innovative business models, and regulations and policies, there is a great deal of potential for creating a more efficient transport system. It will require more and new collaborations in order to achieve this.

We at CLOSER would like to pursue joint initiatives in collaboration with those of you operating in the world of business or industry, at a university or institute, municipality, authority or region. Initiatives that contribute to a more efficient, sustainable and well-functioning transport and logistics system.

In dialogue with our partners, we are able to address needs and ideas, which can then lead to projects not only being tested but eventually scaled up and implemented in real-life situations. Collaborations and ideas that lead to new innovative products and services, which in turn lead to a sustainable transport sector and sustainable society.

"For us, the partnership with CLOSER means that we have a relevant platform where we can influence the direction and design of the future transport and logistics system together with other players in different sectors. We appreciate the exchange of knowledge, networking and concrete projects made possible by CLOSER."

Åsa Leander, Greencarrier

CLOSER works to increase and disseminate knowledge, and do this by offering networking opportunities that can lead to innovation in transport efficiency.

What is transport efficiency?

Transport and logistics activities that take place as efficiently as possible from a resource, energy, and environmental and economic perspective in order to achieve increased sustainability, growth and competitiveness.

What can CLOSER offer?

A neutral meeting place.

Both in physical or digital form. Where all partners within CLOSER can feel confident and secure in sharing their challenges and proposals for solutions, a place where the fact that the benefit of shared knowledge can lead to development becomes clear to the entire industry.

Support in the innovation process.

CLOSER helps to find the right funding, coordinate project applications, manage projects and is responsible for communication. CLOSER's coworkers have a broad and up-to-date range of competences and experience, primarily in transport and logistics, but also in areas such as finance, law and communication, which we are happy to share.

Establish relationships.

CLOSER's broad network of national and international organisations can help you find the right contacts and match the challenges of your organisation with precisely the contacts that you need.  

Are you and your organisation interested in collaborating on transport and logistics issues?

Then CLOSER can help you. CLOSER is a platform for collaboration and knowledge-sharing with a focus on logistics. A huge area - but one which is divided into four categories: City Logistics, Energy Supply, Long-distance Transport and Digitised Logistics
