Economics and Pricing

The use of economic policy instruments to influence traffic and transport behaviour is gaining in importance. Our work focuses on efficiency of all transport modes. The latest developments in economic theory in this field are applied to assess traffic and transport policy on the Flemish, Belgian and European level. A solid knowledge of numerical equilibrium-models is our basis when computing the welfare costs of transport measures.
