Sustainable transportation

The future of sustainable transport will depend on smart and innovative solutions to cope with an increase in the flow of goods at the same time as it will reduce the harmful effects on the environment and climate.

Demand for better interoperability between different modes of transport, better maintenance, lower energy use, as well as an increase in the capacity of existing transportation systems will be required.The transport of goods and people must function equally well in winter, spring, summer and autumn.

At LTU, research is focused on vehicle technology, maintenance systems, vehicle testing operations in cold climates, road engineering and space technology.LTU plays a leading role in maintenance technology in the rail and road sectors, automotive testing and energy-efficient vehicle technology.
