InterTran research project focused on expanding policy domain of traffic and transport in Europe
The project, carried out between 2011 and 2014, focused on the new, expanding policy domain of traffic and transport in Europe from both legal and logistical perspectives.
The interdisciplinary InterTran research project members of the University of Helsinki and the Aalto University organized a two-day concluding conference on September 2014. The project was funded by the Academy on Finland.
Assistant Professor Anu Bask, School of Business, was responsible for the logistics part of the project.
“Our results from the industry indicate that the key challenge to solve in rail-based intermodal transport is the availability of services as currently there is lack of services,” said Anu Bask.
"Service availability is linked to the current geographic coverage of services and infrastructure, which both need to be developed in order to develop sustainable service supply," Anu Bask continued.
