Abstract

The project investigates the possibility of setting strategies at government level for RTI applications in road freight operations (RFO). Alternative scenarios were devised for the development of RFO operations over the next 20 years in Europe. The possibility of a system architecture at three levels, (centrol systems, fixed terminals and mobile units) was evaluated. It was found that an integrated road transport environment (IRTE) is not yet possible as a result of various technical political, economic and social conditions in European countries. A system of four pre-IRTEs is suggested as the best way forward.
