CLOSER is a Swedish cooperation platform, knowledge hub and project workshop for increased transportation efficiency. The results of our work create new solutions for the freight transportation system needed to supply a sustainable society.

CLOSER is a neutral platform that gathers players from the business community, industry, universities and institutes, cities, regions and government agencies to establish collaboration and projects that lead to enhanced transport efficiency.

SSPA contributes with expertise

By consolidating Swedish expertise, CLOSER’s partners can jointly tackle the major challenges facing the transport system. The logistics researchers at SSPA are involved in several research projects on the development of innovative logistics solutions and energy efficient vessel concepts for increased use of sea transportation, including inland and urban waterway transportation. For example, SSPA research and development efforts include projects that demonstrate the use of urban and inland waterways in the DenCity project.
