Urban Goods Transportation - a literature review

Authors: Torild Barlaup
Report nr: 1022/1995
Language: Norwegian

This report is a survey of recent and present research in the field of Urban Goods Movement. Important subjects are the structure of freight transport and the goods and transportation volumes it represents. The report indicates how localisation of terminals and distribution centers affect traffic volumes, transport costs and efficiency, problems with distribution in cities and actions to be taken. The main conclusion is that there is lack of updated statistics and data describing urban goods movements. There are, however, interesting, international research projects going on in other countries which have not yet been documented. Finally the need for further reaserch on the matter of urban goods movement is outlined.
