  • Include the title of the special issue in the cover letter.

Transport and logistics, essential components of today‘s interconnected and globalized world, serve as the backbone of economies worldwide. They facilitate the seamless movement of goods and people, driving trade, commerce, and societal development. However, amidst their significance, contemporary transport and logistics sectors face multifaceted challenges that demand innovative solutions.
Ensuring accessibility of transportation services in both urban and rural areas remains a pressing concern. Additionally, environmental sustainability and the imperative for eco-friendly transportation and logistics solutions are paramount. Crafting responsive transport services that adapt to evolving demands and integrating diverse transport modes within the same infrastructure poses significant challenges. The precision and reliability of transportation providers are also critical factors in meeting modern logistics demands.

Furthermore, challenges such as cybersecurity risks in digital transportation systems, optimizing last-mile delivery efficiency, mitigating traffic congestion through intelligent transportation systems, and addressing the social and economic impacts of transport disparities are equally significant hurdles for both transportation and logistics sectors.
To tackle these challenges, embracing science, research, and emerging technologies is imperative. Innovations in artificial intelligence, data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and automation hold the key to revolutionizing the transport and logistics landscape. By harnessing these advancements, we can optimize resource utilization, enhance operational efficiency, and minimize environmental footprint.
We invite researchers and experts to contribute their insights and findings to our esteemed Promet-Traffic&Transportation journal through the upcoming special issue on Innovation and New Technologies in Transport and Logistics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Integration of advanced technologies (ICT and AI) in various transport modes
  • Sustainable transport solutions and green logistics
  • Smart urban mobility and last-mile delivery optimization
  • Cybersecurity in transportation systems
  • Multimodal transportation planning and management
  • Addressing socio-economic disparities through inclusive transport policies.

Join us in advancing knowledge and shaping the future of transport and logistics through cutting-edge research and innovative solutions. Your contributions are instrumental in addressing the complex challenges facing the industry and driving sustainable progress. Submit your manuscripts to be part of this transformative dialogue and impact the future of transportation and logistics.

The manuscripts for this Special Issue must be submitted for review no later than June 30, 2024. The accepted papers will be published online as soon as the paper production phase finishes. The complete Issue will be published as Vol. 6 in the last quarter of 2024.


Eleonora Papadimitriou is Associate Professor in the Safety and Security Science Section of the Faculty of Technology, Policy, and Management of Delft University of Technology. She holds a Civil / Transportation Engineering diploma from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA, 2001), a MSc in Transport from the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech (2003) and a PhD (2010) in Transport Safety from NTUA.
Her teaching and research activities are on the safety and accident risks of all transport modes (road, maritime, rail, aviation), with emphasis on the complex interaction between user, vehicle, technology and environment. She uses quantitative methods for identifying and managing transport risks and their uncertainties. Her research aims to build bridges between engineering, human factors and data science in transport safety, taking into account the value dimension and the ethical issues involved.
Eleonora has been involved in more than 25 research projects in the field of transport safety, including several multidisciplinary international projects of the European Commission, the OECD/ITF, WHO, UNECE etc. She is currently coordinating a Horizon Europe, Marie Sklodowska-Curie industrial doctorates network on ‘AI for Vision Zero in Road Safety’. She is member of the Editorial Board of the Journals Accident Analysis & Prevention, and IATTS Research.

Dario Babić is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, University of Zagreb, Croatia, with more than 10 years of experience in the field of road safety. His main research interests include quality testing of road markings and road signs, scientific and commercial projects related to traffic control devices, road safety, driver behaviour, driving simulator research, eye tracking, etc. He conducted his postdock research at the Transportation Research Institute, University of Hasselt, Hasselt (Belgium) in 2019, and at the Michigan State University as a Fulbright research scholar in academic year 2021/2022.

He is the author of over 50 scientific papers published in international scientific and professional journals and presented at international conferences. Also, during his career, he has participated in over 30 projects. He actively participates in the work of the scientific community through editorial work in scientific journals and as a reviewer for high-indexed journals. In addition, he is a member of Croatian Chamber of Transport Engineers, Croatian Committee for Standardization - Technical Committee DZNM/TO 509: Road equipment and CEN/TC226 WG2 (Road Markings), CEN/TC226 WG3 (Traffic Signs), CEN/T226 WG12 (Road Interaction - ADAS).

Marko Matulin, Ph.D. works at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, the University of Zagreb since 2008 in various roles; currently as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Information and Communication Traffic. Through his research and professional growth, he mastered the use of traffic theory and traffic models in real-case scenarios, quality of service, and user quality of experience analysis for different telecommunication services and networks. He also has hands-on knowledge of relational databases, object-oriented programming languages, statistical analysis, and web application development. The scientific projects he participated in include topics related to user perception studies about various telecommunication services, network performance analysis, and evaluation, and using VR technology in industrial environments. Three of his favorite hobbies are playing tennis and electric guitar (not at the same time) and cycling.

Marko Ševrović, PhD, is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, University of Zagreb.
