Eco-Labeling and Sustainable Urban Freight Transport: How Much Are People Willing to Pay for Green Logistics?

This article reports on a stated preference survey of Italian university students (n = 350) who were asked questions to estimate their willingness to pay for green urban distribution. The authors were interested in consumer choices and decision-making and the willingness of younger people to pay for goods that are delivered in an ecologically-sound way. The web survey results showed that students, in general, and concerned about the environmental impact of freight transport, are responsive to pro-environmental issues, and are attentive to opinion makers. The authors conclude with a discussion of the policy implications of their findings, particularly with regard to information campaigns designed to promote green (environmentally friendly) logistics behavior.
