Urban Freight Transportation Systems
Urban Freight Transportation Systems offers new insights into the complexities of today s urban freight transport system. It provides a much needed multidisciplinary perspective from researchers in not only transportation, but also engineering, business management, planning and the law. The book examines numerous critical issues, such as strategies for delivery, logistics and freight transport spatial patterns, urban policy assessment, innovative transportation technologies, urban hubs, and the role factories play in the urban freight transport system. The book offers a novel conceptual approach for addressing the problems of production, logistics and traffic in an urban context.
As most of the world's population now live in cities, thus significantly increasing commercial traffic, there are numerous challenges for efficiently and sustainably delivering goods into cities. This book provides solutions and tactics to those challenges.
- Includes interdisciplinary contributors from around the globe
- Provides never-before-published original research to help users stay current and develop a deeper understanding of the field
- Presents the methods and results of research that is useful for both academics and practitioners
