Indicators for urban commodity movements

Behavioural or modelling analyses of freight issues require considerable care in specification and testing, as the complexity of freight issues is such that the links between the observable consequences and the policy or operational changes require stringent control of the model or behavioural analysis ab initio. The number of different dimensions of urban commodity movements and impacts is such that cross sectional surveys are inadequate to keep track of geographical, spatial and demand shifts, and the employment, environmental, economic and social impacts. Links between data sources, policy issues and indicators for monitoring purposes are set up. The limitations of cross sectional methods are covered in detail, and land use influences and changes in operational use are also pinpointed through the comprehensive and diverse data available for the Greater London Council area (a).
