What do we do
With the aim of impacting the current supply chain by transforming it, through innovation, into a more sustainable and efficient one, by generating knowledge and identifying common needs and opportunities among the different actors involved, at Logistop we work on the basis of the following ecosystem:
Given by experts in the subject to be developed, open access to those interested in the subject.
access focus session
For Logistop members, aimed at the presentation and discussion of possible project embryos for their subsequent implementation.
access project sessions
For Logistop members in which they will work on the development of the project(s) identified in the focus sessions.
A format for analysis and discussion of innovation in the sector, as well as the challenges we face in our areas of work. (Open access)

Logistop Working Groups
Logistop develops its activity in a series of Working Groups to bring together the capacities of companies and cover all the needs of the sector. In order to promote innovation projects through the dynamisation and coordination of initiatives of interest, members and interested organisations will be able to collaborate in undertaking change through the organisation of dissemination workshops, which will lead to the development of projects. In order to achieve these results, work will be carried out to identify existing needs in the different areas of work, seeking solutions to these needs/opportunities.
We will focus on the following themes:
The Urban Logistics Working Group identifies options and solutions to minimise environmental and management impact, optimising delivery operations through innovation and the use of technology. Mobility restrictions due to pollution and lack of public space, implemented by a large number of cities until 2030, force urban logistics to decarbonise its operations at a time when e-commerce is experiencing double-digit growth annually. In addition, the optimisation and efficiency of operations, the total transformation of delivery modes, the use of proximity warehouses and the active collaboration between city councils, public and private companies, are the main challenges of urban logistics that we will address in this working group.
Decarbonisation can be approached from many interrelated perspectives. Our approach is based on three specific areas: green hydrogen, energy efficiency and renewable energies. At Logistop, we believe that creating and developing collective innovation projects related to decarbonisation will achieve: accelerate the energy transition that society demands, dismantle many myths about what was considered unfeasible or not very operational, promote cost reduction so that new energy technologies are applicable in more and more environments and forget the old dichotomy between economic solutions and sustainable solutions.
It offers the possibility of providing service and advice to Logistop’s members in the global management of public incentives at European and national level to finance innovation projects.
The port logistics sector is key to the leadership position and competitiveness of any country and the importance of ports as drivers of international trade is decisive for the maintenance of economic activity. The Port Logistics Working Group seeks to adapt this sector to the new challenges and scenarios posed by a series of transforming factors that have plunged port logistics into a process of important evolution, which is in a phase of unprecedented acceleration. The lines of action of this working group are: seeking efficiency in port logistics operations, decarbonisation and security.
The circular economy plays a key role as a vector of ecological transition and a driver of change. The sustainable use of resources, the optimisation of the value chain with an integrated and multi-stakeholder approach, as well as sustainable mobility, impossible without decarbonisation and zero-emission transport, are some of the aspects that will be addressed in this working group.
Digitization and automation
Developing a transversal role with the rest of the areas, we will support the current disruptive ones with the use of, among others, the following technologies: Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things(IoT), Digital Twins, Big Data and Data Analytics, process automation and robotics, Robotics and collaborative robotics, AMR and AGVs and sensorization.
