ERITS – An Efficient and Reliable Freight Transport System by ITS
Background: Increased population and increased trade make it so that the demand for transport increases as well, which leads to more congestion and disturbances in the transport system, especially around cities and the central infrastructure nodes. Solving the capacity problem by building new infrastructure in the form of e.g. new or enlarged roads is expensive and is not always possible for reasons of space. One of the alternatives to expand the infrastructure is to with the help of ITS-solutions make better use of exciting infrastructure.
Purpose of the study: How can we with the help of ITS-solutions design a transport system so that society’s need of an effective and reliable freight services are satisfied?
Delimitation: Vägtransporter, inklusive noder och modalskiften (sjö/järnväg)
Expected results: Road transport, including nodes and modal shift (sea/ railroad)
Target group: Everyone who makes decisions in ITS-related questions within transport agency’s , municipalities, EU-commission as well as economic activities.
