Abstract

Developments in transportation intensify effectivity of individual sectors of the economy. Beside freight transport, transportation has a high impact on labor mobility which is directly embedded in economic conditions not only in the private but also in the enterprising sphere. On the other side, economic development depends on engineering sciences, because technology forms the frame conditions of global transportation.
