URBAN GOODS MOVEMENT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT DESIGN PHASES I AND II. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The specific tasks of the Urban Goods Movement Demonstration Project Design Study which are addressed in this report are: (1) To define quantitatively and qualitatively the impact of goods movement in urban areas on goods movement cost, traffic congestion, energy consumption, air pollution, noise pollution, and land use; (2) to identify problems associated with urban goods movement and their basic or fundamental causes; and (3) to generate plausible solutions to these problems. Other tasks of the study, not yet complete, are to analyze the potential solutions, to identify those which are particularly desirable and to propose and design demonstration projects to test and/or implement the proposed solutions. This executive summary provides a brief overview of the entire study.
