Urban Logistics facilities
This study introduces more comprehensive and integrated approach to city logistics issues in the Seoul Metropolitan Area (SMA), which emphasizes the balance between passenger and freight transportations, urban freight-specific logistics infrastructures and services, and last-mile delivery problems.  It examines the major issues and characteristics of urban freight movements in the SMA and diagnoses the existing city logistics policies and institutions so that it ultimately suggests the revised master plan of logistics infrastructure development along with more effective and concrete action plans.
