Freight deliveries in Oslo and other city areas involve a wide variety of challenges. This report is set to conduct ex-ante evaluations of two measures to be implemented in Oslo to improve the situation for freight deliveries by better utilization of road spaces and alternative delivery times. The first measure consists of implementing a prioritization scheme for vehicles at a certain time interval at two delivery spaces in the centre of Oslo. The second measure consists of arranging for deliveries to freight receivers in and around Karl Johan, the main shopping street of Oslo, before the shops open in the morning. We describe the main effects for various stakeholders, quantitatively and qualitatively. The results rely on an extensive data gathering process, consisting of vehicle counts, interviews with shop workers and drivers and GPS data from transport operators. We outline various scenarios, and based on these give recommendations for how the measures should be improved to better suit the situation in the centre of Oslo.
