On the path towards sustainability for the urban area, local authorities make decisions that affect freight
transport. However, in many ways, urban freight transport is a neglected issue. The purpose of this paper
is to map out the current status of urban
freight transport research from a local authority perspective. A
literature review is performed, looking through research in urban freight transport during the last 15 years.
The review presents a large amount of references and it is clear that the area of
urban freight transport has
gained a larger interest during the later part of the time period studied. Research mainly focuses on freight
measures (pilot actions) performed in an urban context, but the local authority perspective is lacking in
many aspect
s. The review shows some areas that local authorities need to consider when working with
freight transport in the urban area, according to the literature: measures; monitoring and evaluation;
performance indicators; transfer of knowledge between cities/cou
ntries; and, stakeholder involvement.
