Business models

New and more sustainable technologies within mobility and transport services create business opportunities. At the same time, business models and the business ecosystem have been identified as bottlenecks for the growth of new services as the value chain will change. In both people and goods transport we expect new and changed roles, a shift in how value is captured and created and new types of public-private business relationships. That is why we focus on business models.

While technology will mature as time goes by, business models might not always change as fast. Therefore, in order for cooperative, connected and automated mobility solutions for goods and people to break through, viable business models or significant changes to current models will be needed.

Drive Sweden has already approached this, by example through our projects KOMPIS, Scania Go, LIMA and self-driving bus shuttle services. These address Mobility as a Service (MaaS), corporate MaaS and the new roles travellers and employers can have when it comes to transportation. Through these projects we have found challenges concerning business models.

On top of them, we have identified the importance of business models for data sharing, digital infrastructure, operation of control towers for automated vehicles and operation of automated vehicles.

To address these areas, Drive Sweden will serve as an incubator and test-arena for new business models.

    Automated Connected Vehicles and Mobility services create new business opportunities. Continuous improvements in technology address many of the current technological challenges, while business models remain a bottleneck.

  • KOMPIS Read more

    The goal is a society that offers "combined mobility as a service", ie the ability to purchase your journeys or journeys from point to point.

  • LIMA Read more

    LIMA is a mobility project for everyone who works at and near Lindholmen. In a pilot, which gathers different modes of transport and parking in a smart service, LIMA's aim is to simplify local and regional travel, increase accessibility at Lindholmen and contribute to a more sustainable city.

  • SESMA Read more

    Sharing economics and acceptance of smart mobility require knowledge in collaboration. In this project, actors from business, academia and the public sector will develop knowledge about technical, societal and sustainable aspects of transport habits, autonomous and electric vehicles and services for sharing economy - with the inhabitants in the center.

  • The digitalization of the transport delivery chain on roads - Phase 1 Read more

    The project will study the improvements that can be achieved through digitalization and data sharing by gathering actors from the entire freight value chain.

Completed projects


  • Automated logistics services Read more

    To create conditions for sustainable urban and regional development there needs to be efficient transportation to, from and within cities and regions. In order to increase efficiency in freight transport it requires better planning and technology to manage physical transport, information and monitoring of compliance.

  • HUGO Read more

    The project aims to investigate, develop a prototype and evaluate the potential of using smaller autonomous electric vehicles to perform last mile deliveries of packages and goods.

  • Sustainable mobility services Read more

    The project (also named Scania GO) aims to create and deploy mobility services, show scaling effects and develop business models. Show that mobility services can reduce the use of private cars.

  • Tunnll Read more

    Tunnll is a next-generation public transit technology. It transforms existing public transport bus services to smart mobility systems.
