"Comprehensive Freight Demand Data Collection Framework for Large Urban Areas," chapter from Sustainable Urban Logistics: Concepts, Methods and Information Systems



Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways (STEPS)

The chapter analyses characteristics and unique features of the freight system, data requirements of different modeling techniques, and the roles of various data collection procedures. The analyses produce a set of findings of relevance to the design of comprehensive freight data collection frameworks for mid-size and large urban areas. Building on these findings, the chapter identifies a modular data collection framework that would enable transportation agencies to mix and match data collection efforts depending on their needs and constraints.
