GP: Industrial Logistics and intermodal transport for SMEs’ development - Italy
PROJECT TITLE Industrial Logistics and intermodal transport for SMEs’ development
PRIORITY Priority 2: Efficient and sustainable transport system and access to information society
MEASURE Measure 2.1:Developing an efficient transport system with regard to sustainable development
OBJECTIVES In accordance with the above-mentioned background conditions, the project aims at providing local SMEs systems with innovative instruments for sustaining their competitiveness and reducing traffic congestion. In particular I-Log is based on six fundamental goals: § Definition and implementation of a set of logistic services with reference to the existing infrastructures - Regional Logistic Service Pattern – in order rationalise logistics and transportation within local productive systems and to integrate ICT solutions in transport and logistic services; § Fine tuning and testing the proposed solutions on the participating local SMEs systems pinpointing organisation and management models for transport services and local platforms; § Promoting and diffusing logistic culture in local SMEs systems creating relation and information networks;§ Exchanging best practices and experiences, diffusing the awareness of the logistic leverage importance for gaining SMEs’ long term competitiveness; § Improving industrial relations among the participating CADSES countries; § Becoming a “network of competence” which can provide SMEs advice and support on innovative logistic services implementation and development; as regards this objective it will be examined to establish a “virtual logistic observatory” for methods, approaches and methodology for organisation and management of local transport and logistic services.

The I-Log project focuses on local SME systems and it aims at developing innovative transport and logistic services for sustaining SMEs’ competitiveness and for reducing transport environmental impacts. I-Log promotes the strategic use of logistics and transportation and wants to represent a contact point between SMEs’ economic needs, such as costs reduction, customer service upgrade, development of economies of scale, and local environmental and social needs, such as life quality upgrade, pollution reduction. Logistics and transportation facilities and services can represent an intelligent overpass of infrastructural bottlenecks, which promotes the balanced development of transport systems and the creation of environmentally sound transport behaviours. The transnational I-Log partnership is based on the above mentioned assumptions and relies on the sharing of the following common needs: - reducing congestion within local SMEs systems and promoting traffic rationalization; - developing intermodal transport systems as a leverage for reducing SMEs costs, increasing supply chain efficiency and reducing the imbalance between road and other modes of transport; - integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in order to speed up information flows and promoting SMEs cooperation. The I-Log transnational partnership represents an heterogeneous network of 23 partners in which local transport and logistic needs are analysed and solved from different points of view and with a cross-sectoral and a cross-industry approach. In fact project’s partners are regional administrations for spatial and regional planning, regional development agencies, public associations, private and public companies and transport research institutes, which are spread in seven CADSES Countries. Each partner is deeply embedded in the local social and economic context of reference and it will have an active role in order to promote solutions which are tailored and consistent with local needs. At the same time the transnational partnership is going to promote experiences pooling, best practices exchange, meeting of public and private actors and the creation of a common set of instruments for achieving the project’s expected outcomes.The project’s structure is based on six sets of activities: A) three functionally related sets of activities, which define the project’s technical and content structure; B) three horizontal/parallel sets of activities which ensure the best project’s implementation and its embeddedness in CADSES space. The first set of activities aims at assessing, thanks to a common transnational analytical methodology, the transport and logistics state of art and perspectives within each local SMEs systems participating to the project. Local SMEs systems will be analysed in terms of economic and productive ripeness, development of transport infrastructures and ICT diffusion level. For this purpose the definition of common analysis indicators will allow the aggregation of local SMEs systems in comparable and homogenous groups (clusters) over a transport and socio-economic point of view.
