Abstract

Success factors that impulse regional growth, such as networks, integration, and efficiency, have been used and taken advantage of to enhance the logistics clusters located worldwide. Although the success factors play an absolutely necessary role in improving logistics-related activities and operations, there is a knowledge gap in the literature regarding their role as an instrument that can boost economic growth. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to identify and subsequently compare the success factors in the logistics clusters in three key specific regions: East Asia-Pacific, North America, and Western Europe. This paper employed a systematic literature review methodology, which identified 50 publications. The research characteristics and objectives were evaluated using a bibliometric analysis identifying a high concentration of articles and publications focusing on describing the technology, and innovation in the regions of East Asia-Pacific and Western Europe as principal and more important elements of the literature review. The findings obtained suggest that the identified success factors that increase the regional growth are equivalent in function among the three regions. This conclusion brought in the opportunity to suggest the proposition of empirical investigations to gather more information in order to improve the logistics operations within the logistics clusters worldwide.
