Abstract: Innovation is regarded as one of the main sources of competitive advantage in the market. However, in spite of these tendencies, Polish companies are still considered to be too little innovative for other European countries or for the world. Companies in the TSL industry (transport-forwarding-logistic) are also in the trend. About their innovativeness speaks little, but at the same time available data show that the industry is not very innovative. One approach that is mentioned as a solution that can help reduce the barriers to innovation in the TSL industry is to work with other companies. This cooperation can take different forms. Cluster structures are also mentioned. Clusters include, inter alia, the possibilities of knowledge transfer, technology transfer, achieving synergy effect and, as a consequence, the joint development of innovation. Referring to the presented problem of innovation, its low level, especially considering the TSL industry and cooperation aimed at creating new solutions as the aim of the article, is to show the role of clusters as a chosen form of cooperation between enterprises in creating innovations in the TSL industry.
