Eurocorridors are characterised via in depth shipping flows and dynamic styles of firm and loved ones destinations. also they are thought of the backbones of strong spatial and financial forces within the parts that attach city areas. one of many major problems within the spatial making plans of eurocorridors has been the necessity to have interaction in numerous different types of collective motion. Such an process might be tremendous hard in perform, helpful to researchers within the box and to execs to boot.

In the sunshine of this, the book’s major pursuits are:

- To outline the matter through examining the most important positive aspects, which come with freight and passenger shipping guidelines and concerns; the territorial context, with its geographical, social, monetary and cultural elements; the plurality of matters with various goals and assets and the inability of homogeneous details.

- to demonstrate review types and assessment frameworks (MCDA; Discrete selection research; Collaborative tests; Geovisualization applied sciences) in theoretical phrases and via case studies.

Example text

Is it a temporary cyclic crisis or does it hide a more structural change of our economy and society? Will we return to the pre-crisis levels of growth and, in that case, will the correlation with the mobility be the same? Or will new economic patterns and new typologies of employment, together with new welfare systems, change this relation? Secondly, while some explanatory factors are fairly well understood, others remain unclear. The contribution of several drivers is almost unknown, usually because of lack of data.

The most important drivers of total freight transport (measured in tonnes or km) are the volume and structure of consumer demand and production and the trade patterns. Logistic developments and attributes of the modes (especially costs, time, reliability, flexibility), on the other hand, are more important drivers of modal split and shipment size. The following developments with respect to these drivers have taken place in recent years and can be expected to shape freight transport in the years to come: • Consumer demand is likely to rise in many if not most parts of the world, which in turn would lead to an increase in the number of freight shipments.
