Koen Mommens is a research associate in the research centre MOBI – Mobility, Logistics and Automotive technology (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) led by Prof. dr. Cathy Macharis. He acquired the degree of Master of Science in Geography at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, in cooperation with Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. He developed the LAMBTOP (Location Analysis Model for Belgian Transport Of Pallets), which calculates the feasibility of palletized goods for a modal shift towards the inland waterways.

TRABAM will enable analyses in the field of external cost calculations, road pricing, city distribution and night time deliveries.
