Logistics - Networks

CREATING CONNECTIONS

In Saxony, it is primarily the Network Logistics Leipzig-Halle e. V. which integrates the diverse stakeholders of the branch. Since early 2016, the network has been running a regional office in Dresden. The Silicon Saxony e. V. association also pools specific logistics expertise in various work groups – for example, on the topic RFID.

Network Logistics Leipzig-Halle e. V.

The Network Logistics Leipzig-Halle e. V. was established in September 2008 at the initiative of regional stakeholders with the objective of further enhancing the service spectrum and the efficiency of the Central German logistics region. Its approximately 120 members include logistics service providers, suppliers, and shipping agents of all dimensions and specializations, public authorities, chambers, and associations as well as research and educational facilities. The network supports its members in all matters pertaining to business development, the recruitment of junior staff as well as the education and promotion of skilled employees; and it permits small and medium sized companies to benefit from the innovations coming from logistics research. In February 2016, the network also opened a branch office in Dresden in order to further advance the establishment of networks among the Central German logistics enterprises.
