Access to leading edge technology, research and thought leadership
Members have the opportunity to trial and be early adopters of technology and methods developed in the research.
Access, free-of-charge, to the Logistics database and tools for analysing data.
Members of the Consortium receive licenses to exploit any intellectual property that results from the research, on favoured terms.
State-of-the-art simulation and data analysis software developed by the centre’s researchers are available, free-of-charge, for internal use by the member companies.
Use of testing equipment and its designs for internal use by member companies.
Industry steered research
Individual members are able to influence the aims and directions of the large-scale research with a modest commitment of resources.
The Centre works closely with industry partners to develop technologies and tools to solve industry challenges.
Community of competence
Opportunity to network and collectively problem solve with other industry members.
Members have access and exposure to other academics and research groups around the universities. These other groups are able to address a very wide range of issues that may be of long or short term interest.
Under the Centre’s ‘15by25’ programme, every fleet operator that supports the Centre is allocated a team of expert researchers, tasked with helping them reduce fleet fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by 15% in absolute terms, on 2015 levels, by 2025. The researchers measure current fleet operations, analyse anticipated growth, help devise a decarbonisation plan, monitor ongoing performance and report on progress.
Industrial secondments for employees of member companies: to work under the guidance of university staff on company-specific R&D projects. They return to their companies with this experience and the ability to implement the results of their work.
The opportunity to suggest suitable company-specific research or design projects for Masters-level students to complete in a relatively short period of time.
Contact with the universities provides member companies with access to top quality engineering and logistics students, for future employment.
