Synthesis of Freight Research in Urban Transportation Planning

This report synthesizes information about policies and practices for managing freight activity in metropolitan areas and is based on a comprehensive review of international literature. The primary focus is on “last-mile/first-mile” strategies, but the report also focuses on strategies affecting environmental issues and trading hubs or nodes. The research looked beyond the United States—mostly, but not exclusively, in Europe and the European BESTUFS (Best Urban Freight Solutions) program—for potentially relevant policies and practices that could be used in the United States. The report will be of interest to transportation planners and strategists, particularly those representing the larger urban areas.
