Evaluation of the Urban Freight Transportation (UFT) Projects

This paper describes the concept of Delivery and Servicing Plans (DSPs) in the context of urban freight transport (UFT). DSPs are key strategy documents outlining how an organisation will deal with its need to generate freight transport efficiently, safely and in sustainable way. From the review of the state-of-art in evaluation for transportation projects, it was possible to highlight the main principles of UFT evaluation and the difficulties to implement it. Four DSP measures evaluated in the European Union (EU) funded TRAILBLAZER (Transport And Innovation Logistics by Local Authorities with a Zest for Efficiency and Realization) project show the impacts of the measures on energy consumption and CO₂ emissions and key findings concerning the evaluation approach.
