What are CLOSER and our partnership focusing on right now?
In what area can CLOSER help you and your organisation?
CLOSER is divided into four areas: City logistics, Energy supply, Digitized logistics and Long-distance transport. But as you will notice as you immerse yourself, CLOSER works across borders and in the end everything has to do with each other in one way or another.
How do we create logistics in the city on people's terms?
More and more people are moving to our cities, which places demands on an efficient and sustainable supply in the form of packages, food, building materials and efficient return and waste management. Together with our partners, CLOSER works to accelerate the development of, and the transition to, a sustainable and habitable city on people's terms.
What is CLOSER doing in terms of energy-efficient & fossil-free freight transport?
Together with our partners, CLOSER works to accelerate the development of, and the transition to energy-efficient and fossil-free freight transport. We do this by carrying out projects in collaboration with those of you operating in the business world, academic institutions, city or region. Within this focus area, we at CLOSER are particularly focused on freight transport by road as this accounts for the largest share of energy consumption for transport in Sweden.

How does digitalisation affect logistics?
CLOSER works within the focus area of Digitalised Logistics to ensure that the industry takes advantage of the opportunities offered by data-driven logistics and digital innovation. Knowledge and experiences between players and the logistics system are shared through dialogue and collaboration. Your organisation's needs are addressed and can be translated into projects and solutions that lead to a sustainable and digitalised system and society in accordance with Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement.
How can long-distance transport become more efficient?
It is important in this regard to utilise the benefits of each individual mode of transport, the correct mode of transport for the correct task. In order to be able to use the most sustainable mode of transport for a route, it is absolutely crucial that we optimise the transfer between different modes of transport - it should be cost-effective, accessible and punctual.
