The Lindblad equation allows to explore general properties of open quantum systems. Whenever strong decoherence processes are present, one expects the system to become classical. Namely, the evolution of the surviving diagonal terms of the density matrix is Markovian.  Surprisingly enough, many interesting aspects of the quantum system can be inferred from the classical limit. Among which we will explore ballistic, diffusive and anomalous  transport  as well as a condensation transition for interacting quantum particles
