The City of New York, with the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has embarked on the Manhattan Garment Center Urban Goods Movement Study in order to better understand the goods movement process, to develop techniques to alleviate the difficulties of urban goods movement, and to implement these techniques. This Garment Center study represents the first major effort to investigate the goods movement problems existing in a major, highly urbanized environment. The project is a comprehensive study of urban goods movement and is organzied to meet several objectives: (1) to be accessible and responsive to the community; (2) to develop, design, evaluate, and implement short-term, low capital improvements for the goods movement system; and (3) to identify long-term solutions to goods movement difficulties.
