Résumé / Abstract
French road freight transport firms are variously affected by the current crisis in the sector. Due to the fact the SMES are often the hardest hit by changes; they are forced to find new ways of working in order to cope with socio-economic and financial pressures. To discover more about and better understand such companies and the way the have behaved in a variety of social and industrial territories, we have examined a transport undertaking in the south of France over a period of approximately twenty years by combining the approaches of these different disciplines: social anthropology, geography and socio-economics. This piece of exploratory research has revealed the large number of ways in which transport companies are interlinked with their environment and applies a new methodological approach.
