Abstract

The project investigates the potential of new information and communication technologies in order to establish integrated pan-European freight and fleet management systems. The tasks pursued are improvement of road transport efficiency by improved capacity utilisation and better compatibility of fleet operations with traffic management; reduction of environmental pollution caused by road traffic by reduction of road capacity demand and fuel consumption per transported volume and by better utilisation of intermodal options; and improvement of road safety by improved planning, control and information of road transports, especially for dangerous cargo, and by improved working conditions for the driver.
