International Economics Institute

Transport and Logistics

Objetives

The IEI aims to develop and further its research in the field of transport economics. In order to accomplish this goal, work and studies are carried out and articles are published. Seminars, meetings, workshops and forums for discussion are also organised when called for, either by the IEI itself, in collaboration with other institutions, or with their participation, so as to foster academic and social debate.

The main lines of work undertaken to date within this area focus on:

- Socioeconomic impact analysis of infrastructure work (Ports, High Speed Trains)

- Port structure and trade flows

- Transport economics and intermodality

- Logistics and sectoral competitiveness

- Deregulation and liberalisation of rail transport

- Efficiency and productivity analysis in the transport sector

- Coordination of transport services and optimal price fixing
