The purpose of this paper is to present an outlook on the future research for a specific mixed model transportation network referred to as Foliated Transportation Networks (FTN). FTN is thus far a conceptual model that is based on the idea of foliating a direct shipment and a hub-and-spoke structure in order to achieve higher fill rates without an increase in the total traffic work at the same time. The conclusion is that the two principal areas of research are areas of planability (i.e., the ability to in advance and on a sufficient level of detail and precision determine the capacity requirements of the system) and network optimization (i.e., the optimization of the distribution of goods and resources between the different layers of the network).
