East-West Gateway Coordinating Council, in cooperation with and under the leadership of the St. Louis Regional Commerce and Growth Association, has been involved in an effort to identify the nature, extent and severity of the urban goods problem in St. Louis. This program demonstrated that there is a general lack of concensus and agreement among various groups representing the Urban Goods Industry as to the nature and scope of the problem. Each group tended to view the overall problem from its own perspective, without general agreement on the extent of the overall problem. The major conclusion to be drawn is that future effort should be directed toward communication among groups so that a coordinated and comprehensive effort can be made to improve efficiency in the movement of urban goods. In addition, Transportation Systems Management (TSM) solutions should be pursued to deal with urban goods movement problems such as traffic congestion and inadequate loading zones. (Author)
