Perspectives on Competition in Transportation

Issues of competition seem to have been neglected for a long time in the transportation sector. But the provision of transport services at competitive prices and quantities may have an important impact on economic development, both from a regional and a global perspective. This volume addresses such issues of competition in transportation. Part I deals with the air transport sector, part II is concerned with the road transport sector, part III takes a look at transportation costs and, in the final part, some visions of competition in transportation are discussed. Michael Pickhardt is an economist at the Technical University Chemnitz (Germany). Jordi Sard Pons is professor at the Economic Department of the University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Catalonia (Spain).
