  • A systematic approach to innovation in transport and logistics is given
  • The approach is illustrated by seven case studies, offering a broad and comprehensive up-to-date view concerning the European freight transportation as examples
  • Case studies demonstrate how implementations of innovations may be performed successfully in supply chains in transport and logistics

Serious problems and risks can be observed in European freight transportation development. However, the transport and logistics sector shows a lack of tradition in utilising systematic innovation management to overcome these problems. Hence, this volume puts forward a specific and comprehensive Systemic Migration-Oriented Innovation Management Method. Within the scope of this research, seven case studies of European freight transport innovations have been conducted using this method. They offer a broad, comprehensive and up-to-date view concerning different carriers, degrees of automation, and corridors across Europe. These case studies demonstrate how implementations of innovations may be performed successfully.
