INNOVATIONS IN URBAN GOODS MOVEMENT
This paper looks at innovations in urban goods movement in the context of economic and political reality. It overviews dimensions of the urban goods movement problem as it relates to urban growth and economy; identifies impacted groups; and analyzes real and pseudo-solutions. The paper suggests better street traffic management; auto-free zones rather than truck-free zones; and selective construction of truckways and truck streets. It calls for consolidated shipping and receiving areas in office buildings; increased cargo containerization; and strategic development of transportation facilitation centers.
