The subjects of mobility and transport affect people today more than ever. On the one hand, an effective transport system is an essential prerequisite for a prospering economy. On the other hand, mobility also allows individuals to actively participate in social life while offering them a high level of personal freedom. This reliance means that individuals participating in the transport system are more easily frustrated with disruptions such as capacity constraints, delay, inadequate information or insufficient safety.

Cargo bikeDespite their large potential to reduce emissions and increase transport efficiency, cargo bikes have thus far not been used to any significant extent for commercial purposes.This project offers companies and public institutions the opportunity to test cargo bikes over long periods of time. In addition, a large number of other decision-makers and multipliers will be addressed through intensive public relations work.
The Institute of Transport Research in Berlin-AdlershofOur vision: A modern and future-oriented transport system, efficient and sustainable for people and the environment.
Commercial Transport DepartmentThe sustainable and future-oriented design of commercial transport drives our research and consulting at the Institute of Transport Research. Particularly in light of further growth in interregional freight transport and increasing small consignments in cities, companies and municipalities need to develop new concepts in order to ensure both the supply of goods and the quality of life in cities. We contribute to these challenges with scientifically based expertise. Through our research projects, we answer relevant questions on commercial transport for our clients. Here, we derive recommendations for transport policy, for developing sustainable technologies and business models, as well as for the diffusion of innovation in logistics.
