Developing city logistics typology

What is it about?

Taxonomy of (European) city logistics projects/cases, challenges and solutions and impacts.

Why is it important?

One of the major problems in selecting urban freight solutions is choosing - from many available options - those that meet the needs of urban freight stakeholders. Is there a general common framework that can be used, by all significant urban freight stakeholders, to adopt or to agree upon the uptake of any urban freight solutions? What has been learned from previous EU urban freight projects? Is there a typology that can characterise a sustainable city distribution?

The paper is twofold: first, to collect a comprehensive inventory of city logistics interventions in a coherent, standardised, and modular manner, cross linking that typology to the impacts, validated by an expert panel, for use by city logistics professionals. Secondly, to analyse and construct a city logistics typology as a methodological and theoretical tool for deductive research work.
