Abstract

The main objectives in urban freight transport policy are improving accessibility and at the same time reducing the adverse effects of freight transport. This can be done by:

* reducing the number or trip-ends;

* reducing the number ofkilometres driven;

* minimising the use of large vehicles;

* minimising the effect of vehicle-use.

This paper aims at the logistical solutions that can be used to meet the above requirements and at the opportunities these logistical solutions offer to make use of new transport technologies.
