Nevertheless some open issues still need to be considered. Firstly, uncertainty on the development of some crucial drivers remains. The most important doubts are related to the economic crisis. Is it a temporary cyclic crisis or does it hide a more structural change of our economy and society? Will we return to the pre-crisis levels of growth and, in that case, will the correlation with the mobility be the same? Or will new economic patterns and new typologies of employment, together with new welfare systems, change this relation?

Therefore, converting the PC flows into OD flows, which can be done by a ‘logistics model’, [7] is required for a meaningful network assignment of freight transport. The data available for transport flows from traffic counts, roadside surveys and interviews with carriers are also at the OD level, not at the PC level. The main reason for consolidation is the desire to reduce costs by sharing transport costs with other shipments. It allows the use of fuller and larger vehicles and vessels with lower unit cost.
