The Research Center for Transport and Logistics (CTL) of the “Sapienza” – University of Rome was founded in 2003 by prof. Francesco Filippi as a Center of Excellence recognized and co-financed by the Ministry of Education, University and Research.

In 2006 the CTL became, with a resolution of the Academic Senate, a Research Center endowed with the administrative, accounting and financial autonomy envisaged for the Autonomous Spending Centers.

In 2011 the Academic Senate and the Board of Directors confirmed, by resolution, the nature of an Interdepartmental Center, approved as a Research Center, until the subsequent renewal of the Center in 2014.

According to the new Regulations, the Center is made up of four proposing Departments, within which the members of the Steering Committee and the Technical-Scientific Council are appointed.

Wirtschaftsförderung Region Stuttgart GmbH

The Stuttgart region is an innovative, globally leading industrial location. In order to be able to maintain this position, the region needs expansion areas for established companies and space for new companies to settle there. It is important to anticipate the future needs of the economy.

The WRS continuously monitors and accompanies the supply of commercial space and the demand, supports companies in their search for a location in cooperation with the municipalities and informs investors about settlement opportunities.

Zailog Scarl

The need to develop a new subject of the “ZAI galaxy” arises from some needs encountered in the economic-entrepreneurial fabric and from the general need to govern, with effective tools and in concert with the Management of the ZAI Consortium, the continuous increase in demand for transport and of logistics activities in the area.

Given its nature as a Public Economic Body, in its actions and strategies the ZAI Consortium must have particular regard and attention to the territorial effects and protection of the public interest. At the same time, the development of the ZAI Consortium depends on the development of the players established in their areas, on their competitiveness on international markets.

ZAILOG SCARL is a subject able to act as an “operational” interlocutor for policies for freight transport and logistics in a wider territorial area than that traditionally pertaining to the ZAI Consortium, but which is above all capable, as a whole, to develop a critical mass of freight transport infrastructure and services offerings. The role of ZAILOG SCARL is therefore based on providing services that do not have a market demand, but are capable of generating benefits for the ZAI Consortium and for the whole of the local production fabric.

ZAILOG SCARL was therefore established in 2016 by the ZAI Consortium and Quadrante Servizi to create and stimulate the research and development of innovative technologies and new process (and business) models in the transport and logistics sectors, as well as their transfer to the Italian industry, and in particular to the companies located and operating in the Interporto Quadrante Europa in Verona.
