THE ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY AND SOCIAL DESIRABILITY OF AN URBAN GOODS CONSOLIDATION TERMINAL, PART I

The scope of the UMTA/OSU study includes an examination of general freight pick-up and delivery shipments ranging from one to 5000 lbs. Flowing into and out of the Columbus, Ohio Central Business District (CBD) performed by private and for-hire carriers stationed outside the CBD. Excluded from the study scope were organizations that specialize in small shipment distribution, namely the Postal Service, United Parcel Service, and Railway Express Agency. This study examines the impact that routing the measured daily demand through a consolidated terminal would have on traffic flows in the CBD. The experimental technique of simulation was used to make this determination. /UMTA/
