Eurocorridors are characterised through extensive shipping flows and dynamic styles of firm and family destinations. also they are thought of the backbones of strong spatial and financial forces within the components that attach city areas. one of many major problems within the spatial making plans of eurocorridors has been the necessity to interact in numerous sorts of collective motion. Such an technique may be super not easy in perform, valuable to researchers within the box and to execs to boot.
In the sunshine of this, the book’s major pursuits are:
- To outline the matter by way of studying the most important beneficial properties, which come with freight and passenger shipping rules and concerns; the territorial context, with its geographical, social, monetary and cultural elements; the plurality of topics with diversified goals and assets and the inability of homogeneous info.
- to demonstrate evaluate types and evaluate frameworks (MCDA; Discrete selection research; Collaborative tests; Geovisualization applied sciences) in theoretical phrases and by means of case studies.

In emerging economies, such as China and India, freight transport by road has been growing in all years in the period 2008–2011 In van de Riet et al.  and de Jong and Ben-Akiva  the key drivers of freight transport are identified. The most important drivers of total freight transport (measured in tonnes or km) are the volume and structure of consumer demand and production and the trade patterns. Logistic developments and attributes of the modes (especially costs, time, reliability, flexibility), on the other hand, are more important drivers of modal split and shipment size.
May encourage the number of trips per person and the travelled distance to rise. 6. Transport infrastructures and services: the development of new infrastructures and transport services and particularly the improvement of their level of service, accessibility and safety aspects, creates new and better opportunities for mobility which boost the trip frequency and distance and impact on route (for car trips) and mode choice. The choice of alternative transport modes and a reduction of car trips can be strongly affected by efficient integrated transport systems which give people the opportunity to travel for long distances without long waiting times for transhipments and streamline passenger flows.
