Researchers in Sweden – transport efficiency

Forskare - CLOSER

The research in Sweden in freight transport and logistics comprises several hundred researchers, at a variety of universities throughout Sweden. The area is wide and complex, and all universities have more or less unique approaches, which depend partly on geography, proximity to, but also relation to other strong institutions that create interesting interdisciplinary approaches. Within the CLOSER network, many researchers are affiliated and in the list below you can find contact information to most of them.

  • Stefan P G Jacobsson More info at chalmers.se

    PhD student

     

    Stefan’s research is conducted in a research project called REACH, that is about real-time access management. The project will enable advanced digital real-time interaction between intermodal terminal and haulier in order to improve the efficiency of freight transportations by using access management. Intended actors are haulier- and terminal operators, which will reach greater benefits by using already existing technology but in a new and smarter way.
