Abstract

The Technology-Economy-Society Program at IIASA focuses the evolution, competition, and management of technologies; on identifying economic and social prerequisites; and on assessing the socioeconomic impacts of technological developments.

This reprint summarizes the results of a study performed within the New Logistics Technologies Project in order to explore the interplay between the introduction of some 18 different types of new logistic technologies and the development of freight transport systems.

One in-depth explorative case study from the automotive industry was performed to generate hypotheses and a conceptual framework, which were then tested on some 20 cases from early users of new logistics technologies.
