A five-day conference to explore contemporary issue in urban goods movement (UGM) was organized by representatives of the Transportation Research Board, American Society of Civil Engineers, Institute of Transportation Engineers, and the Federal Highway Administration. Five specific topics were probed and reported upon by work-teams, namely (1) traffic engineering and design to facilitate UGM, (2) impact of local government regulations, (3) interface between Federal regulation and UGM, (4) UGM in regional system planning, and (5) locating and servicing major urban freight generators. In addition to Probe Group reports and recommendations, there are presented 40 keynote, summary and resource papers covering such topics as data requirements, time value of cargo, service trucks, terminal design and location, transportation system management, planning methodology and case studies, intermodal transfer, freight regulation and economics. /FHWA/
