The Growth Logistics 2 project has been funded through One North East Single Programme and the European Regional Development Fund (2007-2013) ERDF - to support companies across the North East to reduce costs and waste within the supply chain by introducing best practice and technology into both thinking and processes applications.
The website features two custom-developed features :
Connect Excess - a platform for companies to advertise equipment and furniture which is surplus to requirements. Items can be claimed and re-used by other registered companies, thus avoiding more waste finding it’s way to landfill.
Capability Connect - a user-friendly online assessment for companies to record in-house skills and facilities. Other registered companies can use the database to find other companies local to them which offer specific skills.
