First published in 1999, this volume responded to the drastic fluctuations in policy changes within the European Union and explored the potential for the various transportation framework programmes financed by the European Commission. The contributors offer an array of recent advances in transportation with a particular focus on Europe. Areas explored include sustainability, multimodal transport policy, freight transport services, transport telematics, regionalism, transalpine freight transport, just-in-time production and the integration of strategic infrastructure networks in Europe.
