Urban transport is rising high on the agenda in many cities. However, relatively little attention has been paid to urban freight compared to passenger transport. This book aims to make the freight issue more visible, by sharing experiences and new ideas from across the world.

Urban Freight for Livable Cities is based on the 2012 international VREF Symposium given in autumn 2012 on the same theme. The symposium was organised to consider the challenges and opportunities currently faced by stakeholders involved in urban freight transport, as well as desired outcomes and targets within both the public and private sectors. The papers presented in this book are updated contributions from the speakers at the conference.
