Now you have the opportunity to become one of our team and collaborate to a sustainable transport future too! Apply for our open position as doctoral student in System effects of digitalization on freight transport.

How will new technology affect the choice of transport solutions and business models? How should policies and strategies be designed to reach a sustainable future? Those are examples of questions that will be answered in this study. Digital and technological development will definitely change our society, the remaining question is: How? There are great opportunities to increase the efficiency of our transport system, but simultaneously are there also pitfalls such as traffic increase, that would result in less sustainable outcomes.
