The Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LCL) took part in the Grand Duchy’s official state visit to France in March.

The visit featured the Grand Ducal couple, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider and numerous other dignitaries as well as representatives from various business sectors.

The LCL was invited to take part in an economic forum aimed at furthering exchange and collaboration between the two countries. LCL Outreach Officer Tjalda von Lilienfeld-Toal was able to present the LCL and its activities to a group of 50 companies based in Luxembourg and France.

Logistics was one of the key areas on the business agenda of the visit, together with ICT and the creative industries. The LCL has emerged as a key player in the Luxembourg logistics landscape, a sector undergoing significant development and disruption, through its research and teaching programmes and its missions to “Innovate, Impact, Inspire”.

Further opportunities for exchange were provided at the International Week of Transport and Logistics, which took place at the same time as the state visit.

The state visit provided an excellent platform to further raise the international profile of the LCL, which already forms part of the MIT Global Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Network with further centres in China, Colombia, Malaysia, Spain and the US.
