In recent years, multimodal mobility and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) have emerged as fundamental concepts in several professional sectors. This trend comes with a wide number of sector-specific technical and functional requirements, including for example delivery time and location in the construction sector, strict in-time delivery for sensitive materials in the healthcare sector and lower transportation times and overall costs in the logistics sector. In this context, this paper introduces a study towards developing ProMaaS: a platform concept developed to open and extend existing mobility services and technologies by addressing multimodal cross-border mobility issues through the lens of sectorial business approaches. This conceptual solution aims to facilitate the daily mobility of professional drivers in Luxembourg, which due to the country size, has an exceptionally high volume of business-related commuting needs from and to neighbouring countries (e.g. to meet partners or to visit customers).
