AIDA-F - Potential of interdisciplinary approaches for organizational innovations in freight transport

Starting out from the programme goals and specified logistic trends the AIDA-F study aimed to identify possible approaches in order to activate potential for interdisciplinary interactions and to anticipate their importance for tommorrow´s goods transport. To this end, it carved out the areas of intervention for organisational innovation: adapting the system architecture of goods mobility, smart use of technologies and integral methods of recording, analysing and optimising freight movements.

Short Description

Content and goals

Given the acute challenges that are being triggered by the digital technology developments 4.0, climate change, environmental burdens in settlement areas or volatile economic dynamics, there is a need to organisationally expand interdisciplinary approaches in order to activate potentials for the beneficial and sustainable mobility of society and business.

Due to the advancing segmentation of fields of knowledge and the specialization of job profiles, the understanding of system networking is tending to decline - despite digitisation - and unexpected system link-ups are manifesting themselves in problematic phenomena and complex interactions.

As the transport of goods, procurement and sales logistics accelerate and burdens on the developed transport infrastructure and in its vicinity increase, such symptoms are generated because the deep-rooted efficiency increase of individual processes shifts the view to systemological", i.e. system-wide, effects. A change in paradigm to an expanded utilitarian way of thinking therefore appears appropriate.

Methods

An adapted interdisciplinary procedures and methods for combining organizational reforms to the transport of goods, all of which build on a foundation of scientific and theoretical findings of knowledge creation, are highlighted as part of a sustainable mobility system. The result should be a better understanding between technical, economic, natural science and humanistic disciplines for the joint accomplishment of tasks. The principles of sustainability, social intelligence, climate protection and environmental qualities give rise to such interdisciplinary objectives.

Results and conclusion

An awareness of the value and benefit of taking an interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of challenges facing the Mobility of Goods has only developed to a certain extent, which is why interdisciplinary results are still hard to come by. External stimuli are usually required to open up introverted specialist debates on the phenomena that occur, to motivate a collaborative accomplishment of tasks and as such to mobilize innovation processes.
