Urban freight

This chapter reviews the state of present knowledge on urban freight. It begins with an examination of the nature of the urban freight problem and the costs of urban goods movement. An analytical taxonomy of those costs is proposed. The second section discusses the potential and difficulties of some of the most important measures that have been proposed to alleviate the urban freight problem. The central role of the government in the effective implementation of these proposals and the discovery of other urban freight strategies is argued in the third section. The nature of planning models needed for this role to be played is considered. The final section surveys the state of supply and demand modelling and the problem of heterogeneity of urban freight (a).
