Disruptions in freight transport

This chapter provides background on the transformation of freight transport and scopes the impacts of potential disruptions such as e-commerce, 3D printing, new international trade routes, autonomous trucks and high capacity vehicles. Also explored are scenarios that combine different disruptions, quantifying the impacts of more technology-oriented changes, logistic or exogenous transformation and all disruptions combined with high policy ambitions. The first section revisits the current ambition and high ambition scenarios for a more in-depth look at their freight-related features.
