Future Goods Transport in Europe

  • Curt Nicolin
Conference paper


In order to predict future developments in the field of international goods transport, it is necessary first to analyse some of the important factors which determine these developments. I shall concentrate on three such factors:
  1. 1.

    Changes in products and production systems.

  2. 2.

    Changes in the requirements of the world surrounding us concerning, for example, protection of the environment and road safety.

  3. 3.

    Changes in the possibilities offered by transport technology.

Our goods transport system of the future must, however, not just passively adapt to these developments. We also have a number of specific goals to fulfill. In Scandinavia in particular, these goals concern our ability to uphold our competitive position on the European as well as the overseas markets.
