Our transport sector is experiencing a period of rapid technological change and is influenced by many uncertain factors such as consumer preferences and the future size and make-up of our population. The ways in which we travel and move our freight around the country constantly change and will no doubt look much different in 25 years. That’s why it’s important to understand the drivers of change and what the future for transport may look like as we head into the mid-21st Century.
