Rodier, Caroline J. (2013) The Effects of Demand Management on Commercial Vehicle Travel. Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, Presentation Series UCD-ITS-PS-13-01
Presented May 10, 2013 as part of Forum 3, "Planning for Change: How Regions are Planning to Modernize the Freight System in California"of the UC Davis Policy Institute for Energy, Environment and the Economy policy forum series, "Delivering the Green: The Future of California's Freight Transportation System"
The goal of this forum was to explore strategies and policies that can transform the freight logistics system. Metropolitan areas around the world are seeking ways to manage urban freight and its impacts. Strategies focus on last mile/first mile deliveries and pickups, advanced vehicle and fuel technologies, environmental mitigation, and trade nodes. Furthermore, increased efforts to integrate regional land use and transportation systems have the potential to reduce the distances traveled by and GHGs from local commercial vehicles in urban areas. This session explored the latest research, modeling and planning focused on freight logistics to address policy goals for energy and climate.
