The deployment of commercial transport (freight and passenger transport) is characterised by a high dynamic processes, specifically in Germany. The progressive globalization across countries at European level requires a trans-European consideration of today's regional and transregional commercial transport. Selected global relations have to be observed too. For comprehending the causes of this development and making prognostic statements, the Department of commercial transport at the Institute of Transport Research has extensive knowledges on interactions between production, distribution and transport in the realm of commercial transport and the transport of goods in particular. The Department has a variety of research tasks, from basic research to practice problems.

Main focus of research

  • analysis and forecasting techniques of commercial transport (freight and passenger transport)
  • qualitative and quantitative analysis of interactions of land use planning, infrastructure and transport behaviour
  • researching territorial principless of economic sectors respectively economic location as well as production and distribution structures
  • detailed investigation of traffic causes relating to all modes of commercial transport
  • deploying theoretical foundations, techniques and methods for supply and demand modelling of commercial transport on the basis of microscopic and macroskopic modell structures with co-modality approaches
  • researching influences of new commercial transport relevant information and technics
  • deployment of new methods for evaluation concerning transport concepts and the effects of measures in commercial transport
  • commercial transport and environment
