This special issue illustrates the need to highlight all the possible innovations in the field of transport and logistics: service innovations, and also organizational innovations, beyond technological innovations alone. By considering the transport system as a socio-technical system, it shows the interest of considering the conditions of services production, based on relationships between
the actors of the system, as well as the conditions of production of services innovations. The latter appear therefore as essential elements of the characteristics but also of the influence of the innovations in question.

Le présent dossier illustre la nécessité d’éclairer l’ensemble des innovations possibles dans le champ du transport et de la logistique, innovations de services, mais aussi innovations organisationnelles, au-delà des seules innovations technologiques. En considérant le système de transport comme un système socio-technique, il montre l’intérêt d’analyser les conditions de production des services, dans le cadre de relations entre les acteurs de ce système, et ce faisant les conditions de production des innovations de services. Ces dernières apparaissent dès lors comme des éléments essentiels des caractéristiques mais aussi de l’influence des innovations en question.
