Description

Currently the transformation of the multimodal transportation ecosystem is happening now – changes are rapid and involve all modes of transportation. New players use the power of real-time data to offer personalized door-to-door travel and logistics services. At the same time there is an expressed need for an economical, flexible, safe, and more sustainable way to get from A to B by road, rail or water – using all available innovative ways since:

  •  in most EU countries entrants are challenging the existing transport practices and services naming them as unable to fully satisfy a never-ending demanding audience;
  • providers leverage the use of mobiles to create new relationships with travelers;
  • societies have to reduce their CO2 footprint, thus, sustainability becomes an important additional aspect of mobility and our mobility concepts;
Big Data, Data Issues and Artificial Intelligence can play an important part in achieving this vision.
