Contents:
Significant Aspects of the Land-Based Long-Distance Freight Market -- Systemic, Migration Oriented Method of Innovation Management -- Detailed Presentation of Supportive Tools -- Case studies – Part I: Innovative Technologies in European Freight Transport -- Case studies – Part II: Innovations to Improve the Intermodal Transport Chain -- Case studies – Part III: Logistic Service Innovations -- Conclusions and Perspectives.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: Serious problems and risks can be observed in European freight transportation development. However, the transport and logistics sector shows a lack of tradition in utilising systematic innovation management to overcome these problems. Hence, this volume puts forward a specific and comprehensive Systemic Migration-Oriented Innovation Management Method. Within the scope of this research, seven case studies of European freight transport innovations have been conducted using this method. They offer a broad, comprehensive and up-to-date view concerning different carriers, degrees of automation, and corridors across Europe. These case studies demonstrate how implementations of innovations may be performed successfully.
