Abstract
With the growing of urban population, local and national economic prosperity expand rapidly. Consequently, demands of urban freight transport have been perpetually increasing leading to series of freight-induced problems such as congestion, air pollution, noise, environmental impacts, etc., which required some reactions from relevant stakeholders. Public authorities and private companies are the two main actors influencing sustainable urban freight transport. Thus, the research aim is to yield insight into how these two sectors react towards sustainable urban freight transport question and their consequences on environmental sustainability. The author collected ten semi-structure interviews regarding to their approaches to the sustainable... (More)
With the growing of urban population, local and national economic prosperity expand rapidly. Consequently, demands of urban freight transport have been perpetually increasing leading to series of freight-induced problems such as congestion, air pollution, noise, environmental impacts, etc., which required some reactions from relevant stakeholders. Public authorities and private companies are the two main actors influencing sustainable urban freight transport. Thus, the research aim is to yield insight into how these two sectors react towards sustainable urban freight transport question and their consequences on environmental sustainability. The author collected ten semi-structure interviews regarding to their approaches to the sustainable urban freight transport, then analyze the impacts of their reactions on CO2 emissions and ecosystem services based on the sustainable urban transport planning model (SUTP-freight). The findings show most approaches reflect positive impacts on freight-induce CO2 emissions and ecosystems services. Some significant approaches, however, reflect negative impacts due to the conflicts of perceptions and interests between these two sectors, which require more involvement and attention from the public authorities regarding to urban freight transport.
