Logistics offensive in France
French logistics companies have joined forces to found the joint platform "France Logistique" with the objective to regain their country’s place among the top ten of logistics markets worldwide. Former secretary of state Anne-Marie Idrac has been chosen to chair the platform.
"France Logistique" represents the interests of the existing logistics and transport associations and intends to enhance the position of the logistics industry in France by means of five key measures: boosting competitive strength, contributing to the efforts to handle climate change, improving the image of the logistics sector, restructuring urban logistics and participating in the planning of France’s future logistics strategies.
In order to measure and evaluate the results of these endeavours,"Logistique France" plans to create an annual barometer containing a number of indicators. This evaluation tool will be developed in cooperation with industry representatives and the relevant authorities. (mw)
