Emerging countries such as Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa have the fastest growing economies in the world, and the transport sectors in these countries have been widely leveraged by the dynamics of this growth. Scholars and specialists face huge challenges in the important fields of transport planning and management not only to investigate transport-related problems but also to contribute to innovative solutions to the specific problems faced by the transport sectors in these markets. With increasingly globalized economies, advice and contributions from experts is extremely important from the perspective of both public policy and private management, especially for the development of methods and practices that focus on intermodality. The Journal of Transport Literature (JTL-RELIT), e-ISSN 2238-1031, is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that aims to provide a permanent forum for the academic transport community. RELIT is an acronym for the title of the journal in Portuguese, Revista de Literatura dos Transportes. The main objective of JTL-RELIT is to promote the dissemination of scientific knowledge in the area of transport management, planning and economics, with a special focus on emerging markets. Papers reporting experiences from all regions of the world are welcome. RELIT is published quarterly and is committed to strict editorial deadlines. It is published by the International Transport Planning Society, ITPS.
