The LogiNord project aims to enhance the sustainability and efficiency of logistics in Nordic fresh food supply chains. This is done through inter-disciplinary research efforts to develop new knowledge (concepts, models and tools) for coordination and collaborative supply chain planning and control enabled by recent ICT developments.
The research is carried out in close collaboration among Chalmers (Sweden), Aalto University (Finland), Aalborg University (Denmark), and NTNU and SINTEF (Norway) – where synergies among the partners is utilised to further strengthen the Nordic research community within the field. In addition, a key strategy of LogiNord is to have close involvement of a broad industrial network.
Project results are disseminated through scientific publications, industrial seminars, education, public information and industrial demonstrators.
The project is funded by Nordforsk and the participating institutions.
