University of Hull - Foodport Case Studies


The research team at Improve recently delivered a suite of case studies with food and drink businesses for the University of Hull Logistics Technology Group. The case studies were used to evidence and inform a key strand of work from the Foodport research programme.

This is an international project working to:  

  • Create new partnerships for collaboration in food and logistics
  • Develop technological innovation within the food supply chain
  • Establish an improved reputation for the North Sea Region as a dynamic ‘Foodport region’ 
  • Improve the accessibility between the partner regions
  • Recognise green transport corridors for food products

The Logistics Technology Group at the University has both academic and commercial expertise in the coherent implementation of appropriate technologies across the logistics sector.


The University of Hull has been working with Improve over the past year in the context of an international EU-funded project “Foodport”. This project aims to develop the North Sea Region as the best food cluster and hub in Europe for food products delivered via efficient and sustainable transport systems. We have found Improve to be extremely professional in their approach and their services have been a real asset to our work. The opportunity to access people and information through their staff has been extremely helpful and the support provided in the research and writing of a detailed report on the food sector in the Yorkshire and Humber area was very much appreciated.
