The research within transport and logistics needs to be strengthened, and multi-disciplinary research projects are necessary.
The objective of the Centre is to obtain an increased knowledge about the various stakeholders within the logistics and transport sector and to develop new methods and concepts which are applicable to the stakeholders. This includes organisational and management concepts as well as methods based on mathematical models in order to support the various stakeholders which briefly can be characterised as follows:
o Manufacturers and consumers of goods (transport users).
o Transporters (operators, forwarders, etc.).
o Transport infrastructure owner (public authorities, ports, airports, etc.).
o Public authorities (political means and control).
o National economics (derived effects of the transport system and the external influences).
The Centre for Logistics and Freight Transport (CLG) is a multi-disciplinary research centre on logistics and freight transport. The Centre is headed by the Centre of Traffic and Transport (CTT) at The Technical University of Denmark (DTU). CLG is a co-operation between a number of Danish and international universities and companies.
The Centre is mainly funded via a grant of Dkr.20 million over a four year period. This grant is also supplemented by other funds. The funding finances 6 Ph.D.-projects, 8 post-docs., seminars, network activities with international scientists as well as various activities at the post-doctoral level.
