The digital and ICT revolution, the urgency of preserving our ecosystem together with the need to provide the workforce with the required skills are possibly the major challenges ever faced by the logistic sector and the industry they serve.
High in the European agenda, meeting these challenges requires cohesion, synergy and a cross-cutting approach: requirements which the industrial, sectoral associations, due to their vertical nature, are not able to fully meet.
CONFALIS, the biggest Italian confederation of logistics and companies associations, together with its SME’s association Federazione Imprese, aggregate both logistic operators and their users. Representing the logistic supply chain as a whole, CONFALIS and Federazione Imprese are deeply aware of the urgency to face these major challenges from a cross-cutting perspective.
Within this context, Fondazione CS MARE was established by the intermodal logistic cluster in July 2017 to catalyse this cross-cutting vision in the dialogue with the European Institutions, promoting and financing pioneering actions in order to face the major challenges of decarbonisation, digitalisation and skill building.
