Urban and rural transport systems

Reduced impact of transportation is an important part of global and domestic climate goals, but the long-term trend shows increased freight transport.

Our research on urban and rural transport systems uses a systems approach to study to address this urgent challenge. To have expertise on the many different dimensions of the freight transport system, we collaborate with researchers in other disciplines. We have also collaboration with public and private stakeholders in the freight transport system.

The research on urban and rural transport systems covers, for instance, city logistics, system effects of using longer and heavier vehicles, long-term transformation of freight transport, emissions reduction approaches, and barriers and drivers for sustainable freight transport.

The research within the area "Urban and rural transport systems" contributes to the global goals 9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, 11 – Sustainable cities and communities13 – Climate action and 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions. (Pages in Swedish.)

Global goals at packaging logistics - design sciences

For the human being – with sustainable design and technology
People, environments and objects affect each other mutually – at home, at work and in society. At Design Sciences, we start from the UN's global goal of creating sustainable living conditions for humans. For us, it's about designing technologies and environments for the good of man based on sustainability goals.
