Seamless Transport: Making Connections - Highlights of the International Transport Forum 2012
Seamlessness in transport is the physical expression of one of the megatrends of the 21st century: complete connectivity. Seamlessness is about better connecting people and markets, but also about linking sectors, business cases and ideas. Not least, seamlessness is about the convergence of traditional transport infrastructure with the digital sphere, a process that is already changing the way we think about and use transport.
Seamless transport is a powerful strategic vision for our future. Yet the structure of our transport systems with modal transfers, different ownership, international border crossings and security threats makes overcoming the inherent friction in our transport system a permanent challenge.
This publication condenses the main findings from International Transport Forum’s Annual Summit on 2-4 May 2012 in Leipzig, Germany.
