A review of green logistics schemes used in cities around the world

This paper presents several examples of "green logistics" schemes tried out in a number of forward-looking cities worldwide. "Green logistics" involves efficient and environmental friendly urban logistics systems. The paper highlights the primary qualitative ideas of these schemes as well as results of field tests. While most of the ideas can be applied to there cities, analysis is needed in order to determine which combination of schemes is best-suited for a specific location.
