Integration of a Freight Module in a Transport Modelling Approach

Nowadays, the local institutional players would like to extend the assessment of public policies to the issues linked to the haulage of goods. The purpose of these efforts is to better integrate the problems arising from the transport of merchandise: identifying them, integrating them in the modelling and assessing beforehand global policies (including the joint issues of public and goods transport). This document aims at disclosing the initial outcome of the experiments carried out on a linkage methodology between a model of passenger travels and a specific module of urban freight. This work is mainly based on a pilot project implemented in greater Marseille. It is a pertinent case study since the local players are simultaneously challenged by the transport of goods issues within the urban and port areas. It has, on the one hand, allowed to underline the opportunities offered by such a coupling and, on the other hand, to highlight recommendations for a potential transposition of the method to another area under scrutiny.
