The Influence of Logistics Management on Freight Transport Research: a Short History of a Paradigm Shift

 

The study of freight transport has been subject to a long-term paradigm shift since the 1970s as the movement of freight has increasingly been researched as an integral part of logistics systems and supply chains. It has also benefitted from the development of logistics and supply chain management as a business activity and academic discipline.  This paper outlines the history of this ‘logistification’ of freight transport research, examining its impact on the modelling of freight flows and its relevance to a series of major transport policy issues.  It also discusses the methodological implications of this re-orientation and diversification of the field.
