The research within the centre is based on the following core competence areas:
- Business relationships and networks
- Supply chain management
- Distribution structures and strategies
- Intermodal transportation
- ICT and ITS
- Manufacturing planning and control
- Materials handling
- Mathematical optimisation in logistics and transport
- Purchasing and supply networks
- Transport and logistics services
- Urban freight
- Sustainable logistics
For the involved researchers and companies, the Northern LEAD logistics competence centre offers a platform for projects that span over several scientific disciplines. It also makes it easier to make and maintain contacts, between the involved researchers and industry, other researchers as well as funding associations.
