The 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.
