FRETURB V3, A Policy Oriented Software Tool for Modelling Urban Goods Movement

This paper presents a land use and tour-based model for urban goods movement simulation. Three modules interact each other: a "delivery-pick-up model" including transport of goods between all the economic activities in the city; a "town management module", (transport of goods and raw material for public and building works, urban networks maintenance and removals); and a "purchasing trips model", which concerns trips of consumers during their purchasing activities. This paper will focus on the delivery-pick-ups model. Thanks to the results of thorough establishment surveys coupled with driver surveys, this model estimates, on a town zoning, the goods movements (road occupancy, just as by vehicle flows as by on-road parking vehicles) according to the logistic strategy of the shippers and of the haulers, the environment and the characteristics of the establishments and the urban land use. It is divided into four parts: methodology, description of the different components of the model, description of the functionality of the software and discussion of some results.
