Logistics as a key development cluster
The Amsterdam Economic Board, which consists of leading CEOs, scientists and directors, determines the strategy for the economic development of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.
Logistics is one of seven key development clusters designated by the Amsterdam Economic Board since it is an important pillar of the regional and national economy.
Smart Logistics Amsterdam
A four-year innovation programme, ‘Smart Logistics Amsterdam’, was established to strengthen the international competitive position of the logistics cluster in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. ‘Seamless Connections’ is the spearhead project in this Programme.
Seamless Connections: substantive innovations
Seamess Connections is a programme in itself, in which the logistics sector, government and knowledge institutes work together to implement substantive innovations in logistics chains in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA). Seamless Connections is about removing boundaries and obstacles between partners in the supply chain, both literally and metaphorically. Seamless Connections aims to create seamless connections to enable the Amsterdam Metropolitan region to excel in terms of speed, safety and reliability, low costs and sustainability, both now and in the future.
