Presentazione del volume

This booklet contains the proceedings of a Meeting on "Agri-food logistics in the Mediterranean Area", which was held in Reggio Calabria in November 2007 and involved numerous Italian and foreign speakers working in the world of research, institutions and enterprises. The meeting, organised by the LOGICA Laboratory of the Mediterranea University, Reggio Calabria, was not only an interesting occasion to share ideas and knowledge about agri-food logistics, but also an opportunity to draw attention to the Laboratory itself and to Gioia Tauro District of Logistics.
The Laboratory is meant as a multidisciplinary research knot and, therefore, it is an extremely innovative experience. It involves various cultural areas, such as Transport, Logistics, Telecommunications, Automatics, Agronomy. It intends to offer companies, particularly those operating in Calabria, a series of services with a high scientific and technological content, thus contributing to the promotion of Gioia Tauro District of Logistics. It is not an easy challenge; moreover, Gioia Tauro is now playing a primary role in the world traffics and it is a hub in the Mediterranean trade. As a matter of fact, the growing trend of trade leads to consider the port as an integrated logistic platform of national interest, so that the envisaged opportunities can be turned into added value for the whole community and particularly for the agri-food sector.
The Meeting was an opportunity to connect the world of research with the territorial context in order to work on this issue. The text is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on the trinomial "logistics, agri-food sector, Mediterranean area", the second includes specific contributions of scientific and technological research elaborated by professors and researchers working in the LOGICA Laboratory of the Mediterranea University.

Domenico Gattuso, professor in transportation sector at the Engineering Faculty of the Mediterranea University, Reggio Calabria. He is President of the Consorzio Istituto Superiore Trasporti (C.I.Su.T.) and Director of the LOGICA-Logistics Laboratory.
