Innovation in European Freight Transportation Author : Eva Savelsberg Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media Total Pages : 252 Release : 2008-04-29 ISBN 10 : 3540773037 ISBN 13 : 9783540773030 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Innovation in European Freight Transportation Book Description: 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.
