Port of Twente

Case Overcoming obstacles at Port of Twente

Port of Twente is 1 of the 28 so-called Logistics Hotspots in the Netherlands. A logistics hotspot can be seen as a geographical concentration of logistics activities and public-private collaboration with local governments for economical development and regional promotion. Logistics hotspots are studied by Logistiek.nl, which publishes a yearly ranking. In the past 10 years, Port of Twente developed a regional logistics ecosystem and steadily grew to the 6th position in 2020, however, we dropped to the 11th position in 2021. In line with the theme of this year’s congress, we challenge you to come up with a strategic advice and roadmap/implementation plan on how to get back to the top. During the business case session we’ll introduce you to the Port of Twente network organization and provide you information based on your questions to come up with smart and creative solutions.
