Transport Engineering, the infrastructure and logistics are shaping our daily lives. Without it, our complex economies, cities and societies are simply inconceivable. Every day we take the bus, train or our cars and drive over interconnected systems of road infrastructure, railnetworks. We go to shops and buy products that were produced, manufactured and distributed across all continents over all conceivable transport networks, over water, land or via air. And even within large or small industrial complexes, again transport plays a important fundamental role. Think of the automated baggage handling at international airports, fully automated production chains or automated container terminals at large harbours. Transportation is everywhere, 24/7. And transportation is not just a means to an end in our daily practice, but it also influences entire life.
