Who are we
Logistop is a multidisciplinary and inter-territorial working space in the logistics innovation arena formed by all the actors involved in the supply chain, as well as universities, technology centres, associations and specialised consultancy firms.
In April 2019 it was consolidated and re-founded as an association after sixteen years of operation as a technology platform and, in addition, it was recognised by the Ministry of Education and Science in November 2005. Our members include all the players involved in the supply chain, as well as universities, technology centres, associations and specialised consultancy firms, which enables us to drive innovation in the logistics sector.
Through Logistop, research, development and innovation priorities are effectively defined. To this end, a series of events (Observatory Logistic, LogisTalks, Innovation Lab, focus sessions, Innovation Day, value-adding workshops, etc.) are promoted to dynamise, align priorities and needs, as well as to generate knowledge and put it to good use to ensure the competitiveness and sustainability of the logistics and mobility chain in Spain.
Logistop acts as a driving force in any innovation project that requires its participation and contribution.
The importance of Logistop lies in the important role it plays as:
Being the main meeting point for the identification of projects among our members.
Placing innovation at the centre of our strategy and promoting projects among our members, identifying the appropriate participants and taking into account all the actors in the value chain.
All of this, working to capitalise on the current significant opportunity to access public funding through the development and implementation of collaborative projects.
Logistop is the strategic partner of the European technology platform ALICE in Spain, with which we maintain an active and close collaboration, forming part of the working groups that are related to our strategic lines. This collaboration enables us to inform about the state and scope of logistics innovation in the rest of Europe.
Logistop also currently has important agreements and institutional links in place with leading organisations and other associations in the sector.
Vision, mission and values
Logistop’s vision is to be the Spanish benchmark for collaborative innovation in logistics.
We transform the supply chain through innovation, helping industry and companies to become more efficient and sustainable.
- We turn new ideas in the world of logistics and supply chains into value for our partners, their customers and society at large.
- We work together with all members in a joint effort and dedication to achieve greater mutual benefits.
- We proactively assume our shared responsibilities towards the rest of the members, as well as for the good performance and fulfilment of the association’s objectives.
We are currently in a unique situation with regard to public funding. The European Union has one of its highest budgets in history which, together with national and regional public funding mechanisms, places us in a context of unprecedented opportunity to develop innovation projects between different and through consortia. To achieve this, Logistop is the most suitable channel due to its high advocacy capacity, both institutional and business, among other aspects.
At Logistop, we place innovation at the heart of our strategy and work to capitalise on the significant current opportunity to access public funding through the development and implementation of innovation projects. In 2023 we are implementing the Next Leap 23 – 25 strategy that will guide Logistop in the coming years, and one of its main areas of improvement is the reinforcement of the structure of the working groups.
