URBAN GOODS MOVEMENT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT DESIGN. APPENDIX C. DISTRIBUTION LOGISTICS ANALYSIS AND FINDINGS

The purpose of the Urban Goods Movement Demonstration Project Design study was to identify and test solutions to urban goods movement problems. In order to effectively accomplish this, it was first necessary to expand the existing knowledge and understanding of urban goods movement characteristics. One part of this effort was to break urban goods movement into logical parts, called 'segments,' and to analyze each segment's physical distribution process and the associated logistics of providing its goods or services to urbanized consumers. That analytical process, known as 'segment analysis,' is reported in this Appendix.
