Research Project:
STAREBEI 'Understanding Key Drivers for Road Freight Transport Decoupling in Europe'
Research Areas
  • Engineering,
  • Transport
This research proposal intends to analyze and quantify the key drivers explaining decoupling between GDP and road freight transport growth across different EU countries in order to understand common trends and divergences among them. To that end, we will quantify the impact of the evolution of some variables on road transport demand trends of some European countries by using an Input-Output (IO) approach integrating the links between economic sectors and the restructuring of national economy together with the evolution of and technological and logistic factors? i.e. modal split, supply chain structures?. The core objective of this research is to provide strategic lessons that might be applicable in countries where road freight transport is still growing at a pair with GDP
