Adoption of ITS for dangerous goods road transportation – a review and research agenda

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding


ad transport of dangerous goods is due to its inherent risk associated with a potential impact far higher than the small volumes might suggest, and has therefore been the target of numerous ITS-related initiatives. However, there are few indications of actual working ITS solutions for dangerous goods. In this paper we conduct an empirical investigation of past projects and research to analyze the nature of the challenges of adopting ITS for dangerous goods. In line with prior findings on freight related advanced ITS, we find that challenges pertaining to incentives and business models, organizing and industry structure play a crucial, yet unrecognized part.
