Generació de coneixement sobre el transport, la mobilitat i la logística i la seva transmissió a la societat, a través de la recerca, la innovació, la formació i la transferència tecnològica.
El grup consta d'un catedràtic d'universitat i quatre joves doctors (la tesi doctoral dels quals ha estat dirigida pel mateix catedràtic i totes han estat qualificades amb Excel•lent Cum Laude per unanimitat i han rebut premis de recerca de Càtedres d'empresa i premis extraordinaris de doctorat).
El grup és força cohesionat i té una productivitat científica de 10 articles SCI per any (en les revistes ISI de major impacte d’enginyeria del Transport), llegint 1 ó 2 tesis doctorals per any. El que es complementa amb un altre catedràtic a temps parcial amb una brillant experiència professional pràctica en el Banc Europeu d’Inversions.

The group's aims are to generate knowledge on transport, mobility and logistics and to transmit this knowledge to society through research, innovation, education and technology transfer.
The group comprises a full university professor and four young PhD holders whose doctoral theses were supervised by the professor. All four of the theses were unanimously awarded a mark of Excellent cum laude and have received research awards from enterprise chairs and special doctoral awards.

Every year, this tight-knit group produces 10 SCI papers that are published in high-impact ISI journals in the field of transport engineering, and one or two doctoral theses are defended. The group is complemented by another full professor who works part-time and obtained practical experience from his brilliant work at the European Investment Bank.
