Partnerships can contribute significantly to solving urban freight problems; they provide a good opportunity to consider the various perspectives of stakeholders and thereby identify possible solutions. This policy brief presents a framework for organising and managing urban freight partnerships.
This research highlights the importance of quantifying freight trips as a step toward enhancing understanding of urban freight systems. The authors provide an overview of the different uses of Freight Trip Generation models and a glimpse into the state-of-the-art in freight-transport modelling.
