Expected results of the CASTLE project

  • improving local & regional policies in logistics for SMEs by the exchange of experiences among the PPs and the transfer of these experiences into the regional and local policies (as basis for a future “capitalisation project”).
  • promoting, through public policies improvements, the cooperation, networking/clustering of SMEs in logistics to strengthen the regional economies.
  • creating the policy framework conditions for an entrepreneurial and logistics growth which is more sustainable and effective.
  • promoting policies which grant a logistics culture at regional and EU level, in particular by improving logistics skills, training and education for SMEs.
  • improving the capacity of regions of innovating in logistics, as leverage to strengthen their economic competitiveness.
  • promoting public actions to shorten the divide between transport & logistics effectiveness vs environmental protection & energy saving (win-win policies).
