Logistics Centers and Agglomeration Economies: Logistics Clusters or Co-located Logistics Activities? The French Case

Abstract : This paper is concerned with the topic of clusters, which are concentrations of activities which provide their members with beneficial market and technological effects. In order to enrich debate on this issue, we shall focus here on a particular type of concentration (logistics) which differs from others in that it is both specific in nature and managed. In order to analyze the concentrations in question, which we shall refer to as logistics centers, statistical analysis of 733 logistics establishments is performed, some of which are located in such centers, others outside. The results of the analysis show that this form of concentration has impacts which contradict those reported in the literature on clusters, as our statistical results show that these logistics centers do not have beneficial effects for the firms located in them.
