Seamless transport - making the connections: analytical and policy documents for the 2012 Leipzig summit

Download
Bertil Hylen

A Memorandum has been elaborated following a commission by the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications. The Memorandum should primarily serve for preparations for the 2012 Summit of the OECD’s International Transport Forum in Leipzig, Germany.

The first section of this memorandum lists organizations, stakeholders, on-going projects etc. It is not intended to be exhaustive in any way since it was not a part of the original commission. Rather it tries to catch on-going activities and projects that still have not reached the publication and outreach phase.

The second section contains the selected references. They are sorted according to the six issues suggested by the Ministry as starting points for discussions at the summit. It should be pointed out though, that several references address more than one of the issues. Borders may create technology barriers; technology improvements may improve supply chains etc.
