Abstract The length of the goods supply chain is increasing as a result of the globalization of trade. Road transport is adapting to this new situation, all the more so because the economic recession and embedded information systems technology favour these trends. This collection of articles addresses the effects of these changes on the safety and health of road transport drivers.
