FM Logistic, a logistics solutions company, is actively participating in the Clean Ports 5.0 project, an innovative initiative that seeks to optimize the logistics management -from an energy sustainability point of view- of the Spanish port industry, specifically in the ports of Cartagena, Alicante and Valencia.
With an investment of six million euros, supported by the Science and Innovation Missions Program, and co-financed with Next Generation European Funds through the Center for Technological Development and Innovation (CDTI) of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the project aims to reduce emissions from the processes of this industry by betting on renewable energies.
“In the current context of environmental pressures and increased international trade, Clean Ports 5.0 is positioned as a response to strategic challenges, including climate change and the energy transition to renewable sources,” says Cándido Macías, director of IT, Continuous Improvement and Innovation at FM Logistic Ibérica.
FM Logistic Ibérica’s collaboration with IGNIS, Aquiles Solutions, Astilleros de Santander, Eiffage Infraestructuras, Passion Motorbike Factory and TransBase Soler seeks to drive solutions in four key areas:
- Optimized mobility: Promotion of environmentally friendly practices in port processes and the last mile.
The seven companies mentioned above, as well as the technology centers Cartif and Tecnalia, are collaborating in this project. The consulting firm Leyton provides support in the administrative coordination of the consortium.
Clean Ports 5.0 promotes innovation and sustainability in the Spanish port industry, with the aim of promoting cleaner and more efficient practices in the country’s ports: “it is also an example of sectorial business collaboration in the search for innovative and sustainable solutions for ports“, says Cándido Macías.
