Telematics in Goods Transport

Report of the Seventy-Eighth Round Table on Transport Economics Held in Paris on 13-14 October 1988

European Conference of Ministers of Transport

While offering great promise for the future, the use of telematics in goods transport has so far been the focus of little research, although the many applications ranging from logistics to computer aids for drivers and electronic data interchange (EDI) will radically change freight transport markets. International specialists at Round Table 78 compare notes on such vital issues as: the strategies adopted in the sector; forms of standardization called for; productivity gains and the obstacles involved.
