Promoting high quality research and education in the field of transport, within its region, is the main goal of the Benelux Interuniversity Association of Transport Economists - BIVEC-GIBET for short. Founded in 1978, the Association has evolved from a small group of transport economists into a solid and broad-based network of a diversity of transport experts. It presently unites both academic staff and professional people qualified in fields such as transport economics, logistics, regional economics, transport geography and transport law. After a first successful period of 25 years of experience, the BIVEC-GIBET organization is restructuring its activities in order to offer a better fit between academics and leading transport organizations. A first major event took place on November 30, 2005 at Hasselt University with the organization of the first BIVEC-GIBET Transport Research Day. A selection of contributions included in this special issue reflects the diversity and multidisciplinary character of on-going research.
