This project is a follow up of our earlier regional trade projects. Using a completely new approach we determine regional trade in Europe for 59 product categories using logistic chains derived from multiple modes freight data for goods and business travel for services. Next to European regional trade we also determine the transport network and important hubs in transhipment locations.
